Well, a highly relevant and fairly-recent announcement on that... 
According to at least 
and https://itsfoss.com/manjaro-drops-32-bit-support/, one of your 
(maestro's) favorite distros is actually _discontinuing_ its support for 
32bit CPUs. While that may not affect you at all, there are numerous 
persons such as myself who are keeping our x86 32bit machines around, and 
find neither Manjaro's nor Artix's 64bit-only versions such "kewl" 
developments after all :-/

The systemd-free Devuan and Debian's current Stable/Stretch and 
Testing/Buster releases, OTOH, plan to offer 32-bit i686 distro versions 
well into the foreseeble short-term future; at least as long as I can see 
from various online discussion postings such as Reddit's
