Amazingly the new Simplenote
has no Ubuntu Linux 32 bit version (?).
Can’t use it…
You’re not alone…I can understand why more devs are focusing on 64-bit technology since it’s 2016 after all…but one of the appeals of Linux for a lot of people I think is that it runs better on older machines than Windows…like this laptop from 2009 that is still going strong…so I think it would be a good idea to still develop 32-bit alternatives for people in this kind of boat with older machines running Linux :)
