[ale] Ubuntu Dropping all 32-bit Releases from 19.10 forward



https://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2019/06/ubuntu-is-dropping-all-32-bit-support-going-forward


18.04 LTS is the last 32-bit release.

19.10 will not have any 32-bit support. Zero.

No 32-bit upgrade from prior releases.

"Ubuntu say maintaining packages for the i386 architecture is more
hassle than its worth"

BTW, they really dropped i686 support for non-Intel/AMD systems, since
many of the specialty CPUs didn't include all the instructions that i686
Intel CPUs did, but were still used by the Ubuntu kernels.

Anyone interested in a PentiumM laptop?
