Will future versions of BL continue 32bit support ?


My first post on LQ here (Sprinterdriver on the former BL forum).

Have this question : What happens to 32 bit support of BL if/when Ubuntu drop 32 bit support ?

I ask because I still have this old Acer Travelmate from 2002'ish that run BL.

That is worrying about a problem that hasn't materialized yet. If at some point it becomes clear that this is going to happen and I am still active I will investigate possible options. Bodhi is built on top of Ubuntu but it certainly does not have to be.

It's not like we can't keep using bodhi 5 for quite a while longer anyway if we have to.. what will ubuntu 20 give bodhi that it doesn't have already? I mean if they have to they could just make bodhi 6 legacy still ubuntu 18 based. or ubuntu 19.04 based, that still has 32-bit versions. The way I see it, most software I've seen still supports ubuntu 16, I don't think I've noticed anything that even requires 18 that I personally used... so when ubuntu 20 lts does come out, if theres no 32-bit, it's not like all us bodhi 5 legacy users will be unable to keep doing what we've been doing...
