Philip Müller has announced Manjaro Linux will begin phasing out support for 32-bit computers in the final quarter of 2017. A post on the Manjaro Linux website has the details: "Due to the decreasing popularity of i686 among the developers and the community, we have decided to phase out the support of this architecture. The decision means that v17.0.3 ISO will be the last that allows users to install 32-bit Manjaro Linux. September and October will be our deprecation period, during which i686 will be still receiving upgraded packages. Starting from November 2017, packaging will no longer require that from maintainers, effectively making i686 unsupported."
