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?
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.
