It would be good to still get 32-bit support, OTOH I still own my old
32-bit PC, but one reason that it's not mounted anymore, is a missing
IDE drive. At some point it's not that easy to get that easy reliable
spares. Keep also in mind that Ubuntu i386 actually is i686.

My 64-bit dual core already is to old for some software.

$ hwinfo cpu|grep Arch -A3|head -n4
  Arch: X86-64
  Vendor: "AuthenticAMD"
  Model: 15.107.2 "AMD Athlon(tm) X2 Dual Core Processor BE-2350"
  Features: [snip]sse,sse2[snip]

"64-bit dual-core or better x86 CPU with SSE3 support" -


Death of ROXTerm
