Unfortunately yoper went all the way, and while my laptop can run it,
but my 2 AMD K6-2 PC's cant.
But yes i586 is a good standard nowadays for a desktop,
but I still have 486 servers here, and this version has a minimal
server only install option. so its not focussing on the desktop, so its
understandable as to being made for lower spec gear too.

You know this is a pet peeve of mine. I wish more distros compiled
their apps as at least i586 binaries. No one (or nearly no one) would
attempt to use a modern distro on a i386 anymore. Even 486 systems
will be hard to come by now.
At least the Yoper guys are doing something about this, to good effect
