We appear to be approaching the end of 32-bit computing. Much of the newer hardware uses 64-bit processors, with a 32-bit compatibility mode. However, support for 32-bit computing is on the wane.
I was reminded of this change this morning, when I updated my opensuse 12.3 systems. The update brought KDE to version 4.10.2. And on my one 32-bit system, I discovered that KDE activities have been crippled. The full activity capability is still there for 64-bit systems.
