My guess is that the default is 64bit or else other apps might need

The big question is why are the Windows version of LibreOffice and
OpenOffice still 32 bit only.  They've both been available in 64 bit
versions on Linux for years.

Because there is basically no good reason to use a 64bit version of an Office application - unless you really need to work with a spreadsheet or text document that approaches 4GB in size (shudder)...

Even Microsoft recommends installing the 32bit version of Office on 64bit machines.
