i386 Architecture Support at LQ ISO

With many distributions and informational sites either completely stopping or deprecating the i386 platform, it's becoming increasingly difficult and time consuming to keep all distributions at LQ ISO up to date. I'd like to solicit opinions on how to best handle this particular platform moving forward. Note that distributions that are i386 only are not impacted by this. For distributions that are focusing on x86_64 it's likely that we'll stop posting i386 ISO information in the near future. What we're interested in knowing is how many people currently rely on LQ ISO for i386 ISO's? Is it for the major distributions only or is it for all distributions? Your feedback will help ensure we focus our time where it will have the most impact. Thanks.

If you mean the non 64-bit platforms, I for one NEED the non-64 bit platform. I buy my PC's second hand, 64 bit is not readily available as second hand.

Then again, I dont use pusr 386 PC's anymore...they're all Pentiums

Unless I dont understand the question, of course...

Of course, in my search for a suitable distro, I filter the 64 bitters out myself...
