Microsoft Windows used to support processors (Alpha and MIPS) which were capable of 64-bit addressing, but then they discontinued supporting anything but Intel X86.

The OS doesn't need to consume 1/2 of the address space. Intel processors can support more than 4GB of memory, programs just can't address more than 4GB of memory.
