Drop Xubuntu i386 ISO for 16.10 and add Xubuntu for ARM processor computers

I agree that ARM laptops are becoming popular. However, ARM laptops
like Chromebooks are often not powerful enough to run highly RAM
intensive environments such as GNOME or KDE. Also, let's not forget
that plenty of people still run desktop systems. ARM will probably
avoid the desktop chipset market. The entire Canonical range should
incorporate not only ARM and mobile processor devices, but must support
multiple-core desktop/laptop systems.
As I have written earlier, at least one flavor must have a viable i386
variant (ie. can run on minimal RAM, single core Pentium 4-class
processor. I suggest Lubuntu). I don't necessarily see a problem with
developing ARM-compatible versions for as many flavors as possible,
given that it's current technology.
