With Lazarus 1.2 there seems to be a i386 add-in installer for Win64 so 
that one can develop 32-Bit Windows applications as well, so this seems 
to be less of a problem indeed. Nevertheless the 2.6 series of the 
64-bit compiler still has problems regarding exceptions in non-FPC 
binaries that were only solved in 2.7.1, so in this regard it is 
definitely more problematic to use the 64-bit version of Lazarus.
