This one has sse, but doesn't have pae nor sse2. So far, it had
seen all Fedora releases having ever been released.

supported until now, to avoid Fedora loosing users, who already are

The majority of users are on EOL releases but about 15% of rawhide
users are on i386... so I would see if there is a way to reach out and
advertise to those people to see what they are wanting. The majority
of rawhide users are in the US with the next set in India and China.
For users of f25 the majority of users are located in the following countries:
24649 GeoIP Country Edition: IN, India
1068 GeoIP Country Edition: US, United States
564 GeoIP Country Edition: RU, Russian Federation
482 GeoIP Country Edition: DE, Germany
369 GeoIP Country Edition: IT, Italy
345 GeoIP Country Edition: BR, Brazil
329 GeoIP Country Edition: PL, Poland
318 GeoIP Country Edition: CN, China
241 GeoIP Country Edition: FR, France
234 GeoIP Country Edition: GB, United Kingdom
I am not sure if that large number is a data anomaly or not. The
networks in India tend to use nat over nat with multiple endpoints so
1 person can show up coming out of multiple ip addresses over a day.
In the end though I would say working with the India ambassadors to
see what users there are wanting might be a good focus.
- Conversely, I do not see much sense in adding older CPUs, because
these users are unlikely to have run Fedora.
- Though I would feel a little grumpy about it and would consider this
to be a strategic management short sightedness, I do have not much of
a problem in Fedora dropping support for the Pentium III (i.e.
