comment Why is Java running on my PC when I never use it?
Valid observation.
comment Why does 64-bit Windows need a separate “Program Files (x86)” folder?
Just re-read this.. he said it better in his replies - superuser.com/a/442253/142951. If you're not a developer you might not see the purpose.
comment Why does 64-bit Windows need a separate “Program Files (x86)” folder?
I thought you wanted an explanation. Few apps use CommonFiles? I have 35 different applications that have entries there. It's a safer place to store shared components than the System32 directory. Your statement that few apps use this is debatable. Quoting you: "They didn't have to jump through these hoops to allow for 32-bit and 16-bit programs on the same system. I don't recall ever seeing a ProgramFiles (16) or some such [...] The part about it being done as a convenience for programmers reasonable though." Well, yeah.. programmers do. We write the applications after all.
