Works fine with F11 BTW.

It's old enough that the processor ceased production before Fedora
even existed.

And that matters because ...?

Shouldn't it matter simply that it's deployed hardware? Really... Rather than, "PPro/PII/PIII/Athlon is old," isn't the proper rationale for this change, "P4/PM/Atom deployment is substantially greater than PPro/PII/PIII/Athlon/Geode"?

Now, I have no idea if that's true and I'm not asserting that it is. But surely this argument should be framed in terms of the benefit and cost to Fedora users (and potential Fedora users).
