Quote
Though the x32 ABI limits the program to a virtual address space of 4 GiB, it also decreases the memory footprint of the program by making pointers smaller. This can allow it to run faster by fitting more code and more data into cache.[1][2][3] The best results during testing were with the 181.mcf SPEC CPU 2000 benchmark, in which the x32 ABI version was 40% faster than the x86-64 version.[3][4] On average, x32 is 5–8% faster on the SPEC CPU integer benchmarks compared to x86-64. There is no speed advantage over x86-64 in the SPEC CPU floating-point benchmarks.[5]

everyone knows that the new kernel is now focused on new processor instruction sets.

I am aware that the TCL target audience is x86.
when all equations are put side by side
Many updated software will no longer have much meaning.

while adapting to the new 64-bit architecture.
32-bit architecture on the other hand; like idle.

It is obvious that the 32-bit architecture is gradually losing its functionality!

He talks about the 2038 issue on his wiki page.
Of course, there will not be a third world war until that day,
or if we don't die of a new pandemic mutation,
this alternative seems to work for us until 2038!

If we summarize the subject, it is obvious that there will be a problem in 32-bit distribution,
I think a new alternative architectural infrastructure platform should be created.

Maybe I am talking ignorantly with my insufficient knowledge and asking for a fancy linux distribution to be created :)

X32_ABI could be a new alternative for the solution.

Keep dreaming! Do you REALLY know what you are asking for? "Someone" to re-compile all the TCZ to a different arhitecture? Oh boy!
Even distributions with better human/money resources are not doing it.
And if it exist a distro with this X32-ABI why do not you "go for it" yourself?
I think I know why: words are cheap, facts are expensive. Q.E.D.

FYI: The greedy capitalist/monopolist hardware industry is focused to sell more, no to recicle the old x86 hardware. So they need more bloated software, to justify new demand for CPU/GPU/APU whatever.
