Fedora Core This article is kind of a follow-up to my first Fedora Core 2 review, published on OSNews in May. Most of the reviews are published shortly after the release of a distribution, and there's always someone who complains that one cannot really "review" a distribution after only a few days of actually working with it.

i386 vs i686
by raskolnikov on Mon 13th Sep 2004 21:19 UTC

A bunch of questions, that someone here might be able to answer:

Fedora is compiled for i386, right? Why arent they compiling for newer hardware? Are people still using i386?

What are the performance gains on a new box using binaries optimized for 686 instead of 386? Noticeable?
