The splash page says "x86_64-w64-mingw32", so I imagine it's 64-bit.
Alas, I'm skeptical management will go for installing any more
developer tools, certainly not so a single, cranky software engineer
can try to work around problems with Emacs' interaction between Linux
and Windows.

Thanks for the suggestions. I think I'll call WinEmacs, "nice, but not
sufficient" for now, and push harder to get a Linux desktop.
