I'm well aware of the advantages of 64bit, but I still use some 32bit hardware (sometimes) and don't generally bother with 64bit anything.

I do a lot of distro customisation, and going 64bit would double the work across everything. 64bit ARM is a different matter. The next architecture I bother with will more likely be ARM than 64bit x86.

That may mean that Linux Lite is not an option for long, or I may develop a schema/spec for it and make "Linux Lite Retro" or something of that nature, with updated binaries (not a guarantee, just a remote possibility.) Either way I have a fair amount of computing experience, which I'm willing to share here (as well as learn more about Linux Lite.)
