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

Happy U-turn

"Thanks to the huge amount of feedback this weekend from gamers,

Ubuntu Studio, and the WINE community, we will change our plan and

build selected 32-bit i386 packages for Ubuntu 19.10 and 20.04 LTS.

We will put in place a community process to determine which 32-bit

packages are needed to support legacy software, and can add to that

list post-release if we miss something that is needed.

Community discussions can sometimes take unexpected turns, and this is

one of those.(...)"
