Support Debian and let everyone else figure it out themselves.

but what is the reason for removing 32 bit support? Are future processors doing away with 8/16/32/64 bit registers or something? My understanding was that it was compatible on a hardware level.

Go Away

Really I don't see how anyone can drop 32 bit support before Microsoft does, since unfortunately the computing world revolves around Microsoft.
Can confirm none of my 32 bit apps will launch on macOS Catalina beta. Curious why Valve wasn't vocal about it.

Probably because they don't depend on OSX as an alternative to Windows. The whole reason for them going all in on Linux was to give PC Gamers an 'out' with Windows in case they needed it. Now Ubuntu is going to break a chunk of that effort.

Genuinely couldn't care less...

If you want to run legacy apps there are plenty of other ways to do it.

I really like Mint but if they don't fix this problem then I will switch to something else.

Mint is my favorite distro, no elitism, it's just as powerful as anything else for 99% of uses yet as easy to use as Ubuntu without all the BS Ubuntu tries to implement. That being said that is why the Mint team keeps LMDE going, just in case they need to part ways with Ubuntu.
