Respect for moving forward.
Now then for an operating system reputed to run on anything north of a toaster …. it won’t run on an actual 386.
Irritating if you have an actual 386 (80386DX since you ask) but that is life. I guess it also permits the dropping of all the X11 support for ISA graphics cards, sound cards and network cards. All of which is a monster tidy up and probably a good thing.
