WoW64 (Insights from ‘CLR via C#’)

I am currenly reading ‘CLR via C#’ by Jeffrey Richter and would be posting some insights from it as I read along.
Windows 32-bit on Windows 64-bit (WoW64) is an emulation layer that enables 32-bit Windows applications to run seamlessly on 64-bit Windows platforms. Microsoft provides WoW64 to ease the burden of migrating to 64-bit platforms for application developers and to help encourage the adoption of 64-bit computing.”
You can also find the Best Practices Whitepaper for WOW64 which has been recently updated for Windows Vista.
Note: I would hightly recommend every .net developer to read this book at least once.
