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

Why do we act like Linux distros are closed source these days? Surely there are plenty of solutions for this - put them back yourself via custom packages or even compiled from source, shove 'em back on with a PPA as and when someone makes one, create yet another Ubuntu fork, use one of the myriad of existing forks... jump on the Pop!OS bandwagon for example as they've announced they'll put 32-bit back in downstream if it disappears from upstream.

Linux is open source software! Let's not panic about what one has-been distro decides to do with their offical repos.
