The names on the download page should be changed, not your cover.  For a
while now we've needed to make those pages more accessible to
non-techies, and Mo had made a very attractive new draft for that
purpose:
http://duffy.fedorapeople.org/webdesign/get-fedora/ 

I notice that her draft also includes "i686" but I think that we really
should be eliminating jargon as much as possible.  I'll bring that up on
the Websites list as a follow-on, since I didn't notice it earlier.

Am I completely wrong that "For Intel-compatible PCs" is better for the
users to whom we're handing these out?  If we were to make special
64-bit covers, I'd suggest "For 64-bit PCs."  The number of 64-bit
machines is steadily growing in the USA but the people who typically ask
specifically for 64-bit don't need to be told what they have.  On the
other hand, the only way to accommodate people who *don't* know is to
give them the standard 32-bit version, and they don't need to know the
difference.
