What was behind the decision not to support LR4 & CS6 using XP and 32bit systems ? It's going to cause many users like me to have to wait in the software upgrade process until we can afford to purchase a 64 bit computer processor running Windows 7.

XP isn't supported at all in Lightroom 4 and 32-bit isn't supported only on Mac.

Photoshop CS6 does support XP 32-bit. 32-bit isn't supported only on Mac.
