Ah, NO. It doesn't suck.

In fact for many years it was the default OpenSuse kernel. Its performance is
more than acceptable
on the hardware for which it was intended (32bit processors). Still today, for
any 32bit machine
it is the best route.

If you think its sad or in some way a poor performer is only because you have
never used it.

For a long time is was by for the most popular route to more than 4gig of
memory,
because the 64bit kernels were way behind in that time.
