    Yes as more of this happens less and less will wine be dependant on having 32 bit host runtime.
    That's great to know. It will also improve support for Wine in aarch64 hosts (especially those without support for 32 bit like Apple M1) with x86 emulation.

    If only Steam would release 64 bit client and stop requiring 32 bit libraries on host. I know that many games are 32 bit but since they can use Steam Runtime there is no really big need for having 32 bit libraries installed in host OS. Funny thing is also the fact that some of Steam components are 64 bit only (CEF is example) but client still can't work without 32 bit libraries.

    That is awesome! I think the only reason I keep 32bit libraries around is because of Wine.
