Ubuntu developers have detailed the process by which 32-bit library and app compatibility will be maintained in Ubuntu 19.10 and up.
Canonical is a corporation.Man this issue really grinds my gears. The argument it is too hard to maintain 32 bit versions of a distro doesn't stack up and is basically based on the fact they can't be bothered. Laziness.
Originally it was about freedom not so much now imo.For a start not all of linux is about profit - is supposed to be about freedom and quality and there is also the idea of being able to use perfectly good old hardware with a modern alternative to the corp-orates you have mentioned - since when was Linux all about profit????
