Let's also factor in flavors like Lubuntu that aim to use very minimal
resources and that have the ability to run with ~ 300 MB of RAM on an
i386 machine. While I understand modern applications are removing i386
support, we have a nice application base for Lubuntu for both LXDE and
LXQt that provides a minimal but yet functional desktop environment and
we have people to maintain these applications.

So I'm sort of going with what Mark is saying. Please also factor this
in the discussion.
