Out of Steam? Wine draining away? Ubuntu's 64-bit-only x86 decision is causing migraines

...getting ready with my sheild for the downvotes. I've always liked Windows but I like the idea of Linux. I like its free and gives people the option if they can't afford a Windows license or decide they just don't want to use Windows. Or if you're a system builder, you can at least give away an OS with no extra cost in the form of Linux. At least there are options. But Linux doesn't make it easy. You see posts from people over the net saying "Why use Windows, move to Linux" or "Linux is my main system, I only go into Windows if I'm desperate for something that doesn't work on Linux" or "Everyone should start moving to Linux what with Windows 10 intrusiveness". But the problem is, not everyone is a tech. People just want stuff to work, and unfortunately Windows 10, for the most part, does just 'work'. But Linux can be an arse to get working for a non technical person and now this. Hmmm.
