     24== Overview ==
     26This RFC proposes to drop 32-bit builds for Windows for the next major release of MapGuide Open Source.
     28== Motivation ==
     30Most computers today run on 64-bit operating systems. All Windows Servers today (that one would deploy MapGuide into a production window environment) are only available in 64-bit only.
     32Given these factors, there is very little reason to keep releasing builds of MapGuide Open Source for 32-bit windows.
     34== Proposed Solution ==
     36For MapGuide Open Source 3.3, we will only release an installer and InstantSetup bundle for 64-bit Windows only.
     38We will remove all related 32-bit installation artifacts from the windows installer project.
     40== Implications ==
     42This only affects the Windows builds. For Linux, we will still produce 32-bit and 64-bit releases as MapGuide on 64-bit Linux still needs more battle testing before we at a level of confidence where we can drop 32-bit releases for Linux as well.
     44We will still produce 32-bit windows releases for any future MapGuide Open Source 3.1.x releases
