I'm using a 2007 laptop with a Dual-Core, what was quite usual by this
time. And, if I'm not making a mistake, it's a 32-bit CPU. So, I still
need a 32-bit version. And I don't want to change this PC.
Also, I'm using LXDE on it. And I don't think LXDE is going to need 8
GB of RAM anytime soon… So, I think I'll still need a 32-bit version by
the time Trisquel 8 comes out.
