    Steam will stop supporting Ubuntu Linux over 32-bit compatibility
    When there's no native 32-bit support, Valve doesn't want to stick around

    But, the gaming company isn't happy with Canonical and will try to work closer with other Linux distributors

    I can understand removing the option for 32bit operating system as even most phones have more than 4gb of ram now but removing 32bit libraries support is plain stupid. not all applications need to be 64bit as it can cause unneeded overhead.
