Future NAV Versions have 64 bit server only

Just noticed the news that future versions of Dynamics NAV will have a 64 bit version of the middle tier server only. This is important news for planning your future middle tier servers as it means you should start to deploy the 32 bit current version onto 64 bit capable servers with 64 bit versions of the Windows Server operating system. This will make the upgrade process as simple as possible and should increase the scalability of the middle tier from the recommended 25 users, as the server will be able to access more that the 3Gb of memory it can currently make use of, for example.

Many thanks to Waldo for getting this clarification out of Microsoft and making sure it can be shared.
