    I google it and look like it would eat up 1gb of ram just running the OS, not friendly for very old notebook.

    Re: Does latest Ubuntu have 32 bits version?

    Many Ubuntu flavors have 18.04 LTS x86 or i386 (in debian/Ubuntu terminology, i686 actually) releases.
    They are supported until 2021-April (ie. 3 years). To download go to https://ubuntu.com/download/flavours

    Xubuntu & Lubuntu both had 18.10 releases too, and produced x86 (i386/686) ISO's until ~December 2018 or part-way through the 19.04 development cycle. Installs could be forced to upgrade to 19.04 (most would not have seen the daily 19.04 ISOs) HOWEVER x86 binaries have stopped for 19.10 and it would NOT be wise to use it, nor I suspect would it be possible to upgrade a current 19.04 install to 19.10 anymore (many binaries were deleted just in the week before 19.10's official release). I do have a x86 19.10 system, but it's purely used for testing; which is where I noticed the binaries disappearing.

    (FYI: My last 19.04 official daily ISOs follow - note the dates, which is well before release date!!)
    Code:
    -rw-------  1 guiverc guiverc 1529937920 Nov 28  2018  disco-desktop-i386.iso    (Xubuntu 19.04)
    -rw-------  1 guiverc guiverc 1627389952 Dec 20  2018  disco-desktop-i386.iso    (Lubuntu 19.04)

    If you want or need x86/i386/i686 32-bit ISO's I'd recommend using a Ubuntu 18.04 LTS flavor such as Lubuntu, Xubuntu, or try some of the others (Ubuntu-MATE etc) if they are more to your tastes.

    Yes x86/i386/i686 support continues, but only with 18.04 & flavors. I'm one such user of it !

    I have Ubuntu MATE 18.04 32-bit OS on my Dell Inspiron 1505 Laptop. I suggest that. When first released, the developer Mr. Wimpress promised to keep it supported for five years as an LTS. Ubuntu updates for the 32-bit packages keep arriving. Also, you can also install 32-bit versions of snap packages if you are interested in those. This laptop has 2 gB of RAM; Ubuntu MATE with Firefox running it's using 700 mB RAM right now.

    Manjaro XFCE 32-bit is only a project of a few maintainers that are trying to keep it alive. It's not an official release. They are doing their best, but it would require a lot more attention on your part.

    @Dennis N

    The official Ubuntu MATE 18.04 LTS release is https://ubuntu-mate.org/blog/ubuntu-...final-release/ which doesn't mention the end of support. The main Ubuntu 18.04 LTS release statement can be seen at https://fridge.ubuntu.com/2019/08/08...-lts-released/ which states

    Maintenance updates will be provided for 5 years for Ubuntu Desktop, Ubuntu Server, Ubuntu Cloud, and Ubuntu Base. All the remaining flavours will be supported for 3 years.

    Parts of all flavors are supported for the full five years; ie. those parts from the 'main' repository. If you do a `ubuntu-support-status` on a Ubuntu-MATE 18.04 LTS system I think you'll find the MATE components all EOL 2021-April.

    Re: Does latest Ubuntu have 32 bits version?

    I'm not worried. I remember what he wrote. It's in a blog post as I recall. It was celebrated as the first Ubuntu MATE LTS.

    Edit: I should amend that claim of total 5 yr support - It's 78% correct. But that's not bad. Includes the security updates including kernel.

    My Ubuntu MATE 18.04 32-bit support status. 78% of packages supported until 2023!

    Code:
    dmn@Kayleigh:~$ ubuntu-support-status --show-unsupported
    Support status summary of 'Kayleigh':
    
    You have 382 packages (20.2%) supported until April 2021 (Community - 3y)
    You have 1487 packages (78.5%) supported until April 2023 (Canonical - 5y)
    You have 3 packages (0.2%) supported until April 2021 (Canonical - 3y)
    
    You have 0 packages (0.0%) that can not/no-longer be downloaded
    You have 22 packages (1.2%) that are unsupported

    You could try Debian. Lightweight and fully supported.

    This should be too complicated for me now, I think I will try Linux Mint Debian version.

    Re: Does latest Ubuntu have 32 bits version?

    Another nice distro that I did not think of earlier is MX Linux, which has a current 32-bit version. I liked it when I reviewed it about a year ago.

    By default, it came pretty much ready to roll. Debian is a free software stickler, and you have some amount of "customizing" to do there.

    I agree MX-19 Linux is an excellent choice.

    Try Q4Os.
    I have it on my 32-bit 11+ year old netbook, it's nice and as far as can see, it works well. Imitates the old KDE3 desktop!
