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

Win10 will probably continue supporting 32-bit apps for a while yet, not out of the goodness of Microsoft's heart, but because the enterprise market would scream bloody murder, as nearly every company is too cheap to update those apps they've been using since 2004 or pay for maintenance. Although someone will probably be watching at MS and doing a study to see how well getting rid of 32-bit is received in the Linux community.

It's kind of like when MS stopped supporting 16-bit apps natively, actually.
