Currently both x86 and x86-64 have 8K stacks by default as I recall. That wasn't what I was talking about. I was referring to this comment in the original article:
We see them regularly enough on x86 to know that the first question to any strange crash is "are you using 4k stacks?". In comparison, I have never heard of a single stack overflow on x86_64....
That's just a general statement that suggests x86-64 places less demand on the stack than x86.
