    I’m new to antiX, but it seems that one of its unique selling points is how well it runs on on very old hardware. Part of this is down to antiX continuing with i386 releases, which of course is linked to Debian continuing to support 32-bit architecture. Considering this, how likely is it that Debian will continue with supporting 32-bit, beyond Debian 11?

    There is an answer in this article. I don’t know how accurate it is… https://itsfoss.com/32-bit-os-list/

    But remember OSes aren’t the only support you need. Many apps are also dropping 32-bit variants.
