Yes it is, but it provides an explanation as to why Microsoft are not developing a 64 bit version of Visual Studio and is still relevant.

While the other answer came in sooner, my question was specifically about VS 2013 and we all know that with new releases there are usually changes (ala Windows itself), which is why I asked.  I had seen some older posts, but hadn't found anything on VS 2013.  The rationale makes sense.  I can't envision VS needing to be 64-bit itself (it doesn't need it) just so long as it can generate 64-bit code.
