How to Get 32 Bit Version of Ubuntu 17.10
Canonical are no longer offering a 32bit ISO of Ubuntu 17.10. Here is how to build your own using Ubuntu Server / Net Install

$ sudo apt install ubuntu-session ubuntu-desktop gdm3 plymouth-theme-ubuntu-logo
$ sudo sed -i ‘s/GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT=””/GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT=”quiet splash video=uvesafb:mode_option=1920×1080-60,mtrr=3,scroll=ywrap”/’ /etc/default/grub
$ sudo sed -i ‘s/#GRUB_GFXMODE=640×480/GRUB_GFXMODE=1920×1080/’…



This is why Ubuntu WILL lose support. I have a couple of 32bit laptops that work quite well with Ubuntu 16.04, no way would I be able to follow these instructions without tearing my hair out, I am NOT into programming. As someone else commented "I would rather push my fingers into my eyes than do all of that". Please Canonical, think twice, some of us cannot afford newer computers and wasn't that one of the advantages, that Ubuntu would work on older hardware? Now, all my rescued computers will be obsolete. How many other people here are upset about not being able to upgrade to 17.10 because it's ease of installing has gone backwards, requiring programming skills?

I believe "major" distro flavors should drop 32-bit. Only lighter DE flavors like MATE, Xfce and LXQt should have 32-bit support and only till a certain date. I hate to say it as my families 10 year old PC is rocking a 32-bit Kubuntu LTS install, I guess if it makes Vista fly it'll take everything else to Mars.
