Start64!In a follow-up email to a discussion from May when Ubuntu Desktop team discussed the possibility of removal of the 32-bit (i386) installation images from the servers, developer Dimitri John Ledkov confirmed the decision today.

Long story short, starting with Ubuntu 17.10 (Artful Aardvark), Canonical won't offer ISO images for the i386 architecture for the Server (classic) and Desktop versions, but they will continue to provide security updates for existing 32-bit installations via the main Ubuntu archive, as well as Ubuntu Core, Cloud, Container, NetInst, and Server (subiquity) images.
