Windows 95 was the first 32 bit (kind-of)

Windows 7, Vista and XP operate at both 32 and 64

Since this is listed under Unix, Windows and Miscellaneous, we can definitely say that Win 95 was not the 'first' 32-bit OS.

But seriously, are you really looking for a wide open answer?

win 95 = 32
win2k = 32
winXP = 32-64
win7 = 32-64

etc.. etc..
