It was cheaper than buying a Win 7 Home Premium 64-bit followed by an
upgrade to Pro.
I have been bitten by this price difference as well. I can't begin to
fathom the chasm that must exist between Home and Pro in order to cause it
to cost so much to do what is essentially a very basic upgrade.
It's beginning to sound like our best bet in the future is to buy Win
7 64-bit Pro and use XP mode to get to 32-bit.
That's what we've done at my office. As an aside, you are technically
getting 32-bit with any version of Windows 7 64-bit. (That is to say that I
can run any 32-bit program directly in Windows 7 without XP
Mode.) The part you are specifically missing in your case is the 16-bit
layer that Windows XP had. And you are correct that XP Mode will get that
back for you.
