Official Arch Linux ISO Image to Drop 32-bit (i686) Support Starting March 2017

 
I really hate seeing this although I knew it was coming. If you have older hardware like myself, you can run a 32 bit Arch until November when it will officially become obsolete. Currently, I am running Manjaro and I expect to see Manjaro do the same thing. Oh well, it was good while it lasted...
For now, it's only a draft message on their arch-dev-public mailing list, but it will soon be published on the official Arch Linux website for all users, and it means that the forthcoming February 1, 2017 release of Arch Linux will be the last one provided as a dual-arch ISO image, for both 64- and 32-bit hardware platforms.
