“Weâ€™d like to close this item as declined to give your votes back to use on specific topics. While moving to 64 bit helps to scale memory better for large solutions, it could bring other performance degradations. So rather than effort and opportunity cost, the primary reason of our rejection is performance.”
See Make VS scalable by switching to 64 bitYou see, M$ wants customers who are slaves. Why build better software when M$ can sell more copies and make more money instead? It’s not in their interests to provide what you need. This is the 21st century and everyone, including ARM, makes 64-bit solutions to IT problems, except M$. They couldn’t be bothered.
Want to use your hardware to its maximum capability? Use GNU/Linux, the operating system that works for you not M$. I’m a retired old teacher and in my home the only software that has to be 32-bit is an old driver for an old printer and the operating system for our thin clients. Everything else is 64-bit. If I can have 64-bitness, 12 years after GNU/Linux started providing it, why can’t you Visual Studio users? Heck, even a lot of smartphones have been using 64-bit processors and memory for years now. If M$ won’t give you what you want and need, maybe you should choose another provider of software like Debian.
