As per:

Debian Jessie is supported until April 2020 which means 2 more years. That
said, if we must, ToriOS 2.0 will 'also' be based on Debian 8 (AKA Jessie).

So, problem solved!

We can worry about that with ToriOS 3.0, maybe?!

That's not going to help ToriOS nor its users - why?
Well, because:

And, as all of you may know, Ubuntu does not support NON-PAE any more.

However, we all know that sooner or later, NON-PAE CPU and even 32-bit CPU
will sooner or later be dead and not usable any more.
