Well, I wouldn't be that pessimistic.

It would've been much more likely that, should MS Windows suddenly decide to drop support for 32 bits, then macOS would follow suit in no time.

FYI: March 2018 desktop/laptop market share

MS Windows        88.72%
macOS              8.56%
Linux              2.30%

People will use what works for them until Microsoft breaks it and forces them to find something new.
