That's just it: the one project was a matter of life and death and
freedom and slavery for millions, while the other project isn't
remarkably important, and is tailored for the benefit of stock
investors. Besides, if the OS is supposed to be able to run 32-bit
applications and can't then it is broken, and one actually can do
something about that, because the OS is almost all free-as-in-freedom
software.
