Well, Windows and Linux can still run 32-bit applications just fine and it's highly unlikely that compatibility mode in desktop CPUs will be dropped anytime soon.

Cool, microcontrollers are excepted, though (see video). 😁

Here is an interesting thread on Hackerday. Enjoy.

There's a glitch in the matrix.

Apparently 32-bit is dead and nobody likes P4s.

Please don't cry, everybody. It's alright. Its suffering is almost over.

And Win32/x86 applications will still be supported. Even on Win10/ARM.

Sorry I already learned my times tables about 58 years ago.

While I don't agree with Vinyl Records still living, I guess it satisfies a need some people have for a more touchy, feely side of music.

Which is cool. I can't argue since I resurrect and maintain extremely old hardware for that same touchy, feely reason.
