The end of 32-bit computers and its impact on undeveloped countries

There are two things that I have gotten during these days that give me to think about this, one is that the messaging application called Telegram has been sending me messages in the same program that I have installed on my laptop reminding me that soon will stop supporting it so it invites me to change or upgrade my machine to the 64-bit version. The other is about the different distributions offered by the GNU/Linux operating system, and is that little by little they are going through a situation similar to that of Telegram, in which there are some that are possible to use on computers that have these features.

I believe and consider that perhaps in the first world countries or the most developed should not have problems with this situation, since the purchasing power among the population is greater compared to those who are developing or those considered "third world", also because these are industrialized, the change of technology is almost a rule by the same system that governs them, something that in the rest of the countries that are not lag behind in this aspect. In my case it is like this, I live in Venezuela, a country that is going through a deep economic and social crisis, so we do not have industries that cover the technological production to meet the demand, in addition, the quality of household services such as water, electricity, among others, have fallen in quality, so much so that in the case of electricity this has produced due to its instability large losses of electrical equipment in homes resulting in a large graveyard of scrap metal. Then, this has made people in my country have to use mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets to be able to communicate or perform work that require the use of these tools.

All these circumstances have given to think that to be at the forefront of technology must be part of the wealthy classes because the amount of money required is too much for what ordinary people get to earn.

What could be said is that the future that awaits 32-bit computers is that they will be used for text documents, video or audio playback (Yotube, mp3, etc.), and even video game consoles from other times such as the Nes, Snes, Sega Genesis, Playstation One...

But this induced obsolescence? program? leads us to focus on the 64-bit architecture, something that had to happen because everything has to change, and also the same history tells us: before there were the 16, 8, 4-bit machines; something that is inevitable but must happen at some point, and in which surely must already be coming the era of 128-bit computers, which undoubtedly will be a breakthrough and will bring incredible improvements in every aspect.

And you, what do you think about all this? Do you feel satisfied with this situation? Do you accept the changes? Are you willing to have to change technology? Are you in economic capacity to adopt new equipment? Write your opinion in the comments box.

Without further ado, we'll see you in the next installment. See you soon.

That is nice cause we in a fast developing world very soon 128.bits would be introduced.

My computer also has a 32-bit operating system. This situation is pushing me hard because other features of my computer are not very advanced. A computer repair friend of mine said that such old computers can crash at any time. Time to refresh...

In case of failure and they are not repairable, the best thing to do is to send it to be recycled, something that in my country we still do not have that culture. How much does a 64 bits computer cost in your country?

Laptop prices start at $200.

That price is not bad, you just have to collect for a while to be able to buy the machine.
