32-bit or 64-bit?

From Whonix

< Dev



From Whonix ™ 14 onward, only 64-bit builds are available for download.

[1] This decision is based on several factors:

Footnotes[edit]

  1. https://phabricator.whonix.org/T91 [archive]
  2. For example in Tails [archive], less than 10% of users had 32-bit kernels in late 2016.
  3. That is, Whonix ™ would need to maintain 10 images instead of the current 6 images.
  4. Previously, Non-Qubes-Whonix 13 users (deprecated [archive]) who relied on 32-bit (i686) hardware were still able to use Whonix ™ 14 by using the upgrade instructions. This was because none of the Whonix ™ packages were made 64-bit only. A similar procedure is no longer possible, but interested readers can refer to this phabricator entry [archive] and forum post [archive].
