I Not believe in anythink of the dev say in this thread, I believe in Fact and mailisting the fact say: 'Maintain i686 for a maximum of 25 years more'

You need to look up the word "fact". Connecting the concept of "fact" with something somebody said on the internet in the same sentence is like saying: "I never had problems with suspend after a kernel update."

Which makes sense because a lot of people use binary blobs that would depend on all the lib32 stuff if they used 64 bit Arch. @levir3: My guess (based on how friggin easy it is to support i686 if you already support x86_64) is that i686 support will go on for another 10 years.

Ok, so it ended up being more like 4.5 years.
