Well, please remember that all kinds of special devices (SBC's etc.)
still often have i386 or i486-compatible CPU's and are very well
suited for use with Linux.  This could be covered by a Lite-version
or so, but keep in mind that these systems do exists *and* are used.
I think often Debian is used for these systems, but I'm not a Debian
fan and I think we should have something to choose anyway.

The world just does not only consists of "PC's" in the literal meaning.
