People with older devices probably shouldn't be running cutting edge Ubuntu anyway.

I like Void. Still trying to install successfully, though. I want to help complement the Wiki. It could use a lot of new pages there. Installation instructions are very fragmented, you see.

I dunno, a lot of distros are based on Ubuntu. If Canonical truly removes i386 support completely (which it seems they will do soon enough-- they're just providing security updates from what I understand, no?), then that's a huge chain of distros that will be without i386 support, or will have to put in quite a bit of extra effort to support it.
Not everyone on the planet has amd64... a lot of people only have i386 machines.

You or I can move to Debian easily, but the users of the main user-friendlies? Probably not.

FUD? Mate, I'm just saying that Debian isn't as user-friendly as Ubuntu and it's variants.

how much easier do you need? they both come with graphical install wizards and they both come with desktops DEs by default and they both have gui package management.
