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.(...)"

Unfortunately.

Is Windows 10 slurping too much data? No, says Microsoft. Nuh-uh. Nope

Has anyone mentioned Linux?

Works for me.
