It's a nice software but it's like all the other Linux offering that only comes in 32 bit. Which is alright for Windows but not for a Linux OS. Heck how many people are buying 32 bit CPU. This is the reason there is a glut of so many different Linux OS. If you can't offer both version or can't learn how to code a 64 bit version just give it up and get Mageia. Linux has the software to support a 64 bit OS.
