Can someone please exaplin to me in lamens terms 64 bit computing on a Mac?

What 64 bit options are there for Mac users (I noticed todat the Mac Pros have dual 64 bit Xeons)? How do Tiger and Leopard differ when it come to 64 bit? What kind of performance difference is there between 32 and 64? Do all application support 64 bit? Will all chips be 64 bit eventually?

Sorry if these are stupid questions . . .
