I understand the differences between i386, i586, and i686 processors.
Some 32bit people that I try to convince to switch to Fedora do not
understand that ISOs and RPM packages with 'i386' in their name are
modern and not meant for 13 year old computers.

I was thinking that names such as:

'Fedora-12-x86-DVD.iso'  instead of  'Fedora-12-i386-DVD.iso'  and
'Fedora-12-x86_64-DVD.iso'

look more modern and up-to-date. reflecting the contents od the ISOs and
packages.

Fedora is a great product. I appreciate you efforts and your work. And I
congratulate all of you that work to produce it.

So name them as you wish. Which I am sure that you will do.  :-)

Have a good day.
