People are confusing an OS that only runs 64bit Apps with one that is only available for a 64bit CPU, but can still run 32bit apps.

Server 2012 is only available for 64bit CPUs, but still runs 32bit apps (Support for which can be removed, but that's for security reasons), Microsoft is not going to release a consumer OS that doesn't run 32bit programs for a very long time (Consider that they only killed 16bit support for 64bit Vista/7)
