SQL Server Compact 3.5... still no x64 support

It has LINQ. Who cares.

What I want to know is why did Microsoft release yet another version of SQL Server Compact edition where the server tools don't install on 64-bit IIS? Do people actually run x64 servers and then run their IIS in WOW64 mode?

Microsoft's x64 support has been horrendous so far. WOW64... with a whole new registry and Program Files directory? And how about the decision to require Vista x64 drivers be level 3 signed? We've been ready to deploy x64 for like 5 years.... stop jacking around and fix these things already.
