FEDORA --
Fedora Linux has moved towards demoting 32-bit images and Fedora Cloud was the first official flavor of Fedora Linux that will no longer be spinning 32-bit install images post F23.

That decision of Fedora Cloud to stop producing 32-bit images for Fedora 24 and later was decided several months back. However, with the Fedora 24 Beta on approach and F24 set to be officially released in June, they've sent out a reminder about their decision.

Besides the number of non-x86_64-capable Intel/AMD systems rapidly decreasing, their statistics show Fedora Cloud 32-bit images have very little popularity and it's not worth testing the 32-bit images for so little return. The reminder about Fedora Cloud parting ways with x86 32-bit was posted to FedoraMagazine.org this morning.
