    Ubuntu Devs Detail Plan for 32-bit Support in Ubuntu 19.10

    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???? There is still...

    Ubuntu Devs Detail Plan for 32-bit Support in Ubuntu 19.10

    For the record I will never use Palemoon again - the community is toxic and I would rather use GNUicecat or GNUIceweasel or Seamonkey.

    Ubuntu Devs Detail Plan for 32-bit Support in Ubuntu 19.10

    I have installed the newest ubuntu in windows vista

    Well to be honest I am kind of done with Puppy for awhile - along while. I tried the latest two efforts Cosmic Cuttle Fish and Disco Dingo and boy talk about half baked not even tested. No mp4 playback (Had to re-install mplayer). Deadbeef doesn't run properly. Releases are hurried out...
