32bit is not dead
« on: 2017/02/06, 04:49:16 »
In the last news you wrote about a new release but dropping 32bit. And you would like to know if and why someone still need 32bit.

I am using a Atom netbook which is 32bit. Linux is used for a lot of old machines. I can not understand this 32bit bashing.

But as a small distro like you it is acceptable because of your ressource. I would switch to Debian unstable when it happens. I think there is n such a big difference between this.

Just my 2 cents.

@buhtz, that's what is great about linux, you can hold what your using, move laterally to something that works for you or move on with your current or freely select what you like!  ;)

Should you be one of those not happy with our plan, please let us know your reasons on our forum. If you have a good reason to still run 32-bit, you might even be able to talk us into a custom build.

Like the quote says, one can be built for you.

Either I or someone else can build it for you. (ah ya, I just volunteered)  ;)

You can shoot me a pm or ask directly on irc when this happens.
