I don't think it's even a significant minority, but actually the *majority* of users who don't know what version of Windows they're using - assuming they even know they're using Windows at all.
Well, usually they do know that - Windows is too hyped-up to miss. What they don't know is where Windows ends and other things begins. I've seen the cases when people bought new PC (with Windows obviously) and vainly tried to find Excel there (which they have not bought).
The proportion of people who know what processor architecture they're running has got to be far, far below 1%.
This is quite obviously not true because Linux occupies about 0.5% of the market share and most Linux users know that.
