Ubuntu is dropping 32-bit support, so Valve is dropping official support for Ubuntu

Will this have an impact on your choice of Distro in the future (existing Linux users)?

Well, thank god. I'll bet winehq put some pressure on canonical. The first thing you do before installing wine is enable 32 bit arch support. 95% of games out there are still 32 bit. I still think Kubuntu is one of the best linux distros to step away from windows, it did it for me. I felt it would have been a huge mistake for them to do this and ruin that. We need to entice people away from windows, not back to it!
