Because 32-bit x86 processors are no longer in production and many major distributions, including Fedora, are phasing out support for them as supporting them chews up their already limited resources.

Because 32-bit x86 processors are no longer in production and many major distributions, including Fedora, are phasing out support for them as supporting them chews up their already limited resources.
