I care. What impact would this have on Wine? If users are unable to use 32-bit
Windows apps, which are still a nice majority of apps, they'll quickly abandon
Fedora. Eventually that majority will get switched, but I don't see it happening
for at least 2-3 more years.
Sorry, using the word "care" there was poorly phrased. I meant more like
there 32-bit GUI applications that are very important and couldn't be made to
fit this new approach?". Wine is an interesting example I had not considered.
Are we certain that it couldn't be run from within a container, though? Possibly
via a wrapper?
