Finding 64 bit drivers is still a pain, not everything has 64 bit drivers yet.
My advice would be to just relax and wait until sotware makers start releasing 64 bit software and wait for windows to officially release a 64 bit OS to the public.

So my question is has anyone actually received their upgrade?

Note that it is an exchange, not an upgrade. Your Pro32 key will become invalid.
