Why not have both? -- ian


Because we want to avoid ambiguity.

the idea is to provide an easy link for the most common installation
media
It would provide an easy link, because people who understand 'desktop,
32 bit' and people who understand 'i386' are both in their natural
habitat.

Something like "Desktop (32 bit, i386)" and "Desktop (64 bit, x86_64)"
and "PowerPC (ppc)" should work. Also, be sure to link to a page
explaining popular computers and their processor types, or how to find
it on the current OS.
