If I remember well, the long i586/i686 debate on cooker has been
terminated with 2 facts : there are no massive improvements on software
X (I don't remember which one) and we have to keep compatibility with
some netbooks (OEM with mandriva).

If mageia doesn't target these netbooks and if you can show real
improvement, I think this can be discussed.

Have a nice day
