Here's a breakdown as arch percentage over time:


Looks like the 50:50 point was about five years ago.

Thanks! Very helpful to see x86_32 compared to ARM. Trajectory is very important, but laying that aside, x86_32 a) significantly larger than both ARM arches combined, and b) roughly 10% of the "user base".
