seeing as 64-bit has been around for over a decade i don't feel any sympathy for anyone with 32-bit system.

That triggered my curiosity. Many people here still use 32 bit OS?

I quit 32bits 10 years ago.

except for two machines everything else is on 64 bit.
And those two machines are only controller for some ancient hardware, they will be never updated.
Therefore this news doesn't bother me too much

just thinking: if someone has still a pc which can't use 64 bit, why would he bother with updating the gpu drivers?

Both Intel and AMD stopped developing 32bits - only - cpu years ago.

Intel, latest 32bits cpu : Core Duo (2006) and Atom (N2xx - 2008)
AMD, latest 32bits cpu: Athlon XP (2002)

Still got a 32bit laptop that's good for modelling and presentations, 17'' even updated to Win 10 ....it'll still run old apps so is of value when other machines are busy, + great tv running rss feeds and apk's.... Happy running old app versions on it so not bothered about any future support. But sure not going to trash a good m/c

Wouldn't surprise me. Adobe bought Serious Magic's awesome Ultra with their master set libraries (I still have Ultra CS3 working on Win 7 Pro with some of the MSL's) but with the release of CS4, Ultra MSL's disappeared and all that remained was the Ultra Key used in Premiere Pro. Don't like a company? Fear their competition? Then buy them out then dump their software. If anyone still has the MSL's, please upload them.
