Linux "This tree removes ancient-386-CPUs support and thus zaps quite a bit of complexity [...] which complexity has plagued us with extra work whenever we wanted to change SMP primitives, for years. Unfortunately there's a nostalgic cost: your old original 386 DX33 system from early 1991 won't be able to boot modern Linux kernels anymore. Sniff. I'm not sentimental. Good riddance." Almost 21 years of support for a professor. Not bad.

Microsoft only allowed changing ownership of their Windows XP licenses one time.


Well, if you're running a 386 you're probably not going to use XP anyway. You'll be looking at Windows 3.x/95/98 and even if you can't get license just torrent it. It's not likely anyone gives a shit if you torrent Windows 3 or 95.
