[Python-Dev] why is not 64-bit installer the default download link for Windows?

I think this is the solution.

* If you don't know your architecture, 32-bit will mostly work so should
remain the default (I say most, not all, since there are windows versions
that run on ARM, but I think you can only install software through the store
on those anyways.)

* It's not exposed in the download drop down at all that x64 editions exist
for those who know they want it.  The drop down is wide enough to support a
second download button.
