Jumping in here,

I'm curious, what would you (or all the other people) gain if ubuntu  
dropped support for everything under a $CPU_IN_QUESTION

According to that ubuntu could also drop support for those nice  
little sparc boxes it just got certified for. We could drop this  
support that's not the objective of ubuntu, you can run netbsd or  
debian on these boxes....
