64-bit only software recommended for 32-bit system

Asked by Patrik on 2017-12-01

In Software 3.26.1 on Xubuntu 17.04 there's a big banner advertising Atom editor under the headline "Featured application". After installation it didn't start and turns out Atom isn't available for Linux 32-bit systems, according to the website (https://github.com/atom/atom). So no wonder it didn't start.

It would be helpful I think to not show it in the Software center or at least have a warning about it not suitable for my system.

Thank you, I hope this is the right place to turn to.
