For what it is worth, my daily driver is still 32-bit, Toshiba laptop - I hope it outlives me!

I would understand if Pat decided it was time to drop 32-bit, and would likely stay with 14.2 for as long as I could could keep it going in a useful and safe-enough way.

There's practically no extra burden. When I'm done on 64-bit, I boot 32-bit and run a simple script that uses buildlist-from-changelog.sh and make_world.sh (both in the source directory) to catch up to 64-bit. Occasionally this shakes out some errors, so it's a worthwhile test if nothing else.

As an aside, 5nm is looking to be the last process shrink (for a very long time, or perhaps ever). Moore's Law is coming to a close.

We are unlikely to see commodity 128-bit hardware, outside of SIMD or similar extensions -- the R5900 had a 128x128->256 multiply and a few other 128-bit operators, using conjoined registers, but that's different from a fully 128-bit architecture.

For half a century, Moore's Law improvements have been a feature of the industry, something we could make plans around. Our planning will have to change. Architectures won't stop evolving, but the rate of improvement will mostly flatten out. We will have to accomplish what we can in our lives with hardware not much more powerful than what we already have.

For some damned reason, it feels like I've dropped into a net version of Finnegans Wake.

Pat's a big boy. he will be fine. I got big shoulders. his work. I grab it and make it work for me. 14.2 is broken because
it is past date. only thing I use it for is to build programs that I built libraries from 14.1. Usability for ongoing media
pretty much broke. it is a time and $date thing. current is ok. current kde5 ok

(A comment that dates me like those of you who don't understand it wouldn't believe. I've added a link since the meaning of the phrase has drifted somewhat since I learned it.)

14.2 works fine provided you don't need newer hardware support. And with minimal adjustment, it can be easily changed to add that hardware support for most cases.

Did you not read what he said? He said they're in the source/ directory. So, go to your favorite mirror and check out -current's source directory. In there, you'll find buildlist-from-changelog.sh and make_world.sh
