You're free to interpret anything in any way you like, but I don't read any future plans in the original post.FigBug wrote: ↑Fri Apr 30, 2021 9:31 amWhich I interpreted the OP to be asking, will 32 bit plugins continue to work with modern DAWs. To which I stand by my answer of No, at some point (I can't predict when), support for 32 bit plugins will be dropped, or they will just get broken by an OS update.
While not updating the machine is an option, it gets harder and harder as time goes on. Parts break, and when they get replaced, Windows needs to be reactivated, which is no longer offered for older versions. I don't think it's possible to activate XP any longer, other than by finding a leaked volume license key.
Any version of Windows 10 works fine without activating. The difference between an activated and non-activated W10 is irrelevant for audio workstation purposes.
Also, even if Microsoft drops all 32 bit support, the jbridge plugin will still work - it's a 64 bit plugin after all.
