Will LMDE support 32 bits in future? Good for old laptop with 2gb ram?

My old notebook cpu does not support 64 bits. Is the 32 bits LMDE good for long term use with support and update? Would 2gb ram enough for some smooth basic usage like web browsing?

I don't think Mint was created as an improvement to Ubuntu so much as to create an alternative Linux distribution. ...

I am a little concerned about the effect of not being able to master Linux, is having on people. It has to be the most unintuitive learning process, I have ever encountered.
