Having said that: for open source freeware such as this one 32bit makes perfect sense because it's useful to those who really
can't afford a halfway modern 64bit system.
I only meant those. What commercial developers do, is not very interesting for me. With about 4000 freeware plugins directly available to experiment with, my needs in this field are mostly satisfied until...estimated 2025.
But I consider a company offering software today only in 64 bit as arrogant. It's a kind of arrogance like Apple's - we do what we want, and if you cannot follow that with the money in your pocket, well, suit yourself !
The arrogance is also in a part of your reply; how people who cannot afford new computers, or do not want to 'step up' because of compatibility issues, automatically are freeware users, eludes me. They probably are, but not mandatory. They (for example) maybe had once the money to buy a then powerful system, maybe with special peripherals, but not now (again with peripherals). Besides, to dump once powerful systems which aren't 64-Bit ready, but still working, is wastefulness.
