    Actually raspbian is shipped with LO, outdated version coz is based on debian stable, but you can install 6.1.x swapping to the testing branch

    Linux x86 (32-bit) releases are deprecated. Starting with a future version (to be announced), there will be no Linux x86 builds produced by TDF. This does not mean that Linux x86 compatibility will be removed.
    That is OKet, interested distros will build them. Debian builds LO on 10+ architectures anyway

    Say demote instead of deprecate there. That is something opposite of promote

    It seems they only drop 32bit Linux builds not Windows ones.

    I can see that affecting more Windows users. In Linux, machines incapable of 64 bit tend to be too weak for LO, so distros tend to push lightweight solutions instead of LO, like what we see on Raspbian on a RPi. Windows on the other hand do not let you to switch freely from 32 to 64 bit versions, so you are stuck with what came with the machine.
