Manjaro Linux To Drop 32-bit Support
Written by Michael Larabel in Operating Systems on 3 September 2017 at 07:32 AM EDT. 48 Comments
The Arch-based Manjaro Linux distribution is deciding to retire their x86 32-bit support.

Manjaro 17.0.3 will be the last ISO having a 32-bit / i686 spin. Beginning in November, i686 packaging will no longer be required thereby making i686 considered unsupported.

Any remaining Manjaro x86 users can find the details via this maintenance announcement.
