For workstations with 4 GB ram, like XP/Vista 32bit, wu's with less memory requirement are necessary. IMHO most users won't have 8 or 12 GB memory in their systems.
Will there any chance for wu's which can run on such standard workstations? Otherwise, there ought to be a big hint on thefront page.

Right now the farm is rendering things about as fast as I can prepare the scenes (and fix bugs in Blender). I won't rule out the possibility that 4GB 64bit hosts may be included at some point when things are running a little more smoothly.

32 bit hosts will receive non-Sunflower tasks like normally. Recently, though, there hasn't been any such tasks. This will probably change when we upgrade to the new Blender client on that part of the farm.

Update is done, Blender is available for Windows again since yesterday, but only for 64-Bit.
You won't have much luck with a 32-Bit-system...
