If it is no longer supporting 32bit then I guess that's what wrong with it. In my view 64bit is the only sensible option as 32bit will be phased out at some point and since you can run 32bit OS on 64bit processor if you need 32bit for some application then you can still load a 32bit OS. Even the Raspberry PI has gone 64bit  ;)
