Default 64 Bit Software

I've heard new computers are being designed that use 64 bit software. This higher capacity is supposed to lead to new and highly powerful software designs, but I understand the new computers will still be able to run the 32 bit software also. So what does this mean to web designers and desk top publishers?? Will the software we now have be obsolete?? Will we really care??

I have a ton of software, on just so many things. I can't envision replacing it all--there's just too much, and I don't see how it will not serve its function long into the future, even if it all is 32 bit. Further, it accomplishes all the objectives I now have, so what do I care if 64 bit software is coming with higher capacity. However, I understand the 64 bit will make some really exciting games. I know my computer has games and I've always meant to look at them some day.

However, I think it might make a make difference on the server side, or with things like C++ or PHP, but I don't really know about these things.
