As a laptop and netbook owner that don't support x64 I am extremely glad they didn't. Windows 7 runs amazing on both machines, both machines that couldn't run Vista. So I'd be left running XP or Linux.
I have 2 desktops running Win7 x64 - but my other two machines still needed an x86 OS. Its great that you only need x64, but there are millions of computers and their owners out there extremely happy there is an x86 version of MS's latest Operating System. Its not all about you.
