And if they can't afford 64 bit hardware?
Old 64 bit hardware (that is comparably as powerful or more powerful than old 32 bit hardware) is obtainable at the exact same lowest prices these days.....In any case, there is no "can't afford 64 bit hardware" barrier anymore.
You too are projecting your condition on everyone else. Certainly there are people who "can't afford 64 bit hardware" just as there are people who can't afford adequate housing, food,clothing etc. There are parts of the world where having an old 32 bit computer would be considered a luxury.
If you are unaware such conditions exist then you too should consider yourself lucky.
Again since I've gone all 64 bit many years ago ago I don't care if developers support 32 bit and in fact I'd prefer they don't since that would give them more time to work on 64 bit versions which I could actually use.
But that doesn't prevent me from having sympathy for those who are stuck on 32 bit through no fault of their own
Those handful of people who cling to 32 bit out of some form of stubbornness deserve to be left behind since they've made a conscious decision to do so.
Look, the real question here is will a developer lose enough sales by dropping 32 bit support to justify continuing to support 32 bit? I would say no but once again only individual developers know how much work it takes them to update, maintain, and support 32 bit.
My point all along has been the question posed in the poll "Yes. I use the 32bit DAW." doesn't tell the whole story. Does it mean they can't
use 64 bit plugins or they sometimes
use a 32 bit DAW or ? Only the 11 people who responded yes at the time of this post can say for sure.
