Just a quick comment from TQtC’s perspective on this: We do commercially support more platforms than we create binaries for. Linux/32bit is certainly one of those. 

But as Thiago pointed out, those platforms are not always tested quite as well (unfortunately we can’t possibly test all combinations of OS/CPU architecture/distribution in our CI).
