Microsoft has confirmed in a very short tweet that a 32-bit version of Windows 10 will also be released, explaining that there are still millions of PCs out there that use a 32-bit configuration, so it’s pretty obvious that a dedicated Windows build is needed for these computers.

A long time ago, there were some people who claimed that Microsoft’s executives were pondering a plan to move Windows 10 entirely to 64-bit setups, thus abandoning 32-bit completely and pretty much forcing users to upgrade their hardware configurations or stay with an older Windows version.

There’s no doubt that this was a very, very risky plan and if Microsoft indeed considered it, it’s easy to see why the company actually dropped it in the end.

Windows 10 will indeed be available on both 32- and 64-bit versions and the Technical Preview builds that can be downloaded right now are living proof that Microsoft will stick to its traditional plan of tackling both configurations.
