Mac OS X

When users attempt to launch a 32-bit app in 10.13.4, it will still launch, but it will do so with a warning message notifying the user that the app will eventually not be compatible with the operating system unless it is updated. This follows the same approach that Apple took with iOS, which completed its sunset of 32-bit app support with iOS 11 last fall.

This is good. I would prefer other companies, too, take a more aggressive approach towards deprecating outdated technology in consumer technology.

Yes, you're saying that more-than-x86 registers is fairly standard among CPU architectures and good to have - however I wondered if ...something in AMD64 strictly needs them to work. ;)

PS. While searching info on x32 I stumbled on https://wiki.debian.org/X32Port so it seems not only Gentoo that you mentioned toyed with it a bit...
