Older, out-of-date distros quickly become a management nightmare. I
have a firewall still on 7.1 - fortunately we don't touch it very
often, but it's a mess already. I'd much rather have it running 10.2,
but I'd have to build the whole thing myself.

Whilst on that thought - for those who are really keen on running an
i686-optimized machine, why not just rebuild the entire distro for i686
yourselves? Doesn't the build-project allow for that?
