<qoute>- You don't have to throw away your old machine, since it
will revamp a machine starting from a P2* and above giving you a

Does the 11.04 edition in fact run on P2s? As I understand it

Pentium II and PRO (plus Celeron ;) are i686 (P6 microarchitecture).
Pentium (MMX) is a i586. Which is still supported by 10.04 for 5 years,
or is it now 4 years left ;)
AMD K6-(II/III) are i586, Duron and Athlon are i686.
