[CentOS-devel] Why does CentOS 5 claim to be i386 compatible when it's really not?

All,

As interesting (or not) as this discussion may be, please note that
this is the CentOS-devel mailing list and, thus, is not the
appropriate venue -- as it has no relevance to the ongoing development
of CentOS.

Putting that into perspective, the core components of the CentOS
Project are those products that are aimed to be 100% binary compatible
with the Upstream Vendor's products. Therefore if i386 is used
upstream as a label, it will also be used likewise by the CentOS
Project.

Please take the discussion of processors, instruction sets, et al, to
the CentOS general m/l.

In peace and friendship,
Alan.  :-)
