[question] ?! Is it possible to combine these two !? "x32 ABI" + & + "PAE" == !?

Quote
The Linux x32 ABI as a reminder requires x86_64 processors and is engineered to support the modern x86_64 features but with using 32-bit pointers rather than 64-bit pointers. The x32 ABI allows for making use of the additional registers and other features of x86_64 but with just 32-bit pointers in order to provide faster performance when 64-bit pointers are unnecessary.

[question] what do you want
[answer] a universal version of l * n * x

[question] what do you mean by universality !?
[answer] A distribution that knows, running on 32-bit and 64-bit hardware, single distribution,

[question] how do you know this is possible !?
[answer] These standards have been tried to be established before, technically successful
* But there are some minor mistakes but it can be improved further.

[question] Are you talking about the X32_ABI standards!? There is a 4gb address limit and there is a 2038 calendar issue! do you know this !?
[answer] 4gb addressing problem can be overcome with PEA! And when it comes to the problem of 2038, how was the Y2K problem overcome in 2000!? :)
