For Linux it is. Still.

That's not relevant for 32bit Linux distros. It doesn't matter what the
hardware would support - what matters is what the baseline is targetted
to support.
(And no, even if I wanted - and I also think i386 is obsolete -,
I can't just drop support for it).

But you talk about Windows, as long as it doesn't affect Linux I am
