Ubuntu 32-bit Reprieve

A post on BetaNews says Canonical is backtracking on their plans to scrap 32-bit support in Ubuntu. It seems this would mean Valve will be able to continue to support this Linux distro in Steam. Word is:

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. The question of support for 32-bit x86 has been raised and seriously discussed in Ubuntu developer and community forums since 2014. Thatís how we make decisions.
