    Phoronix: Ubuntu To Provide Select 32-Bit Packages For Ubuntu 19.10 & 20.04 LTS

    It looks like my info from this weekend was accurate, "I'm hearing that Canonical may revert course and provide limited 32-bit support." Canonical issued a statement today that they indeed will provide "selected" 32-bit packages for the upcoming Ubuntu 19.10 as well as Ubuntu 20.04 LTS...

      Oh, what's this?

      That's right - that's precisely 2 of my ideas coming to fruition, that others said wasn't possible or likely. "Hurr durr you don't understand what you're talking about". Turns out, I really did.

      Damn it feels good to be right sometimes.

        Seems like a reasonable outcome to me.

              A simple case of "he who has the money.....will have to come up with the solution"

              And at the moment, Canonical has the money. I would love to see Wine apps come as a Snap or Flat.

                Canonical may have money but they don't make any themselves.

                  Sad really, I was hoping that Ubuntu would have displayed more backbone than this. There is no rational reason to be stuck with 32 bit support in a mainstream Linux implementation. No guys playing games is not a good reason to hold back the advancement of Linux. This is really bad for the public perception of Linux.

                    Seems like a good outcome. People get their legacy 32-bit application support and Ubuntu drops useless 32 bit packages like GCC/LLVM.
