Use Manjaro Deepin 32 bit instead! As you may know, deepin GNU/Linux doesn't provide 32 bit version, and it's still no "Ubuntu Deepin Remix" with latest version  for 32 bit until today, so you having 32 bit computers may want a 32 bit, living & supported GNU/Linux distro with Deepin Desktop Environment (DDE). The closest answer for that is Manjaro Deepin 32 bit, a new community edition of Manjaro that comes with DDE + latest applications, and being actively developed. This article includes the download links + screenshots + short list of its default applications.

About Manjaro & Manjaro Deepin

Manjaro is a user-friendly, easy-to-install, and desktop-oriented GNU/Linux distro based on Arch GNU/Linux. Manjaro delivers software to the users in rolling release way and always has the latest version of every software package (compared to Ubuntu & another distros). Manjaro Deepin is a community edition that uses Deepin Desktop Environment and delivering the same applications as deepin GNU/Linux. Manjaro uses pacman package manager comparable to apt package manager on Ubuntu. Manjaro32 is a new community project to continue the support (providing repository, etc.) for 32 bit computers for Manjaro after that support dropped by its original developer.
