    Translation: Linux is always compiled for the absolute lowest common
    denominator. If your processor is a 1985 386-SX, Linux is guaranteed to
    run on it.

    I wouldn't bet it would run on a 386 unless the kernel was specifically
    compiled for that. You are most likely to find the default bloated kernels
    compiled for a pentium, either classic or pro.

    I have an old 386 machine in my basement that I've been meaning to load
    linux on just to see how it performs. I don't know what I would do with it
    after that, and I must admit it's pretty low on my to-do list...

    I had an AT that ran as fast as an XT. Maybe I'll, if I can find it,
    load Linux on it and donate it to Zootal

    Fuck that. I'll have it for my distcc network. I can compile Gentoo with
    KDE, Gnome and 10G or so of other applications in 9 minutes flat. I only
    need another 200,000 or so 386's to blow Oak Ridge National Laboratory's
    Jaguar Cray XT5-HE into the weeds.

    Ignoramus. What happens when you boot a 386 with a kernel compiled for a
    Pentium? I'm betting you don't know because you never tried it. Guess what
    happens when an attempt is made to execute a Pentium+ specific instruction
    on a 386 (bswap, xadd, etc.)? If it doesn't go off on a wab (you do know
    what a wab is, don't you?), and if the kernel doesn't stop the attempt to
    execute, I'm guessing the instruction decoder would barf. Wab, kernel
    panic, or lockup. Take your choice (I don't remember what the 386 does in
    this case, but it's not good lol).

    Anyone here actually tried a kernel compiled for a Pentium+ on a 386?

    Don't laugh, mate, or I shall be forced to show you my electricity bill.
    You won't ever laugh so fucking hard again, assuming you do or do not die
    laughing, at my expense.

    Hey, I have to share this with some cunt and you're best cunt I know,
    next to myself. I don't know if when we got together in Addison, Texas,
    that you noticed I had hearing problems... brought about by working with
    guided weapons and REEELLY FUCKING BIG BOMBE...

    That's I-talian for bombs.

    Over the last few years my hearing has got so bad that, unless I'm
    wearing hearing aids, all I see is a fucking silent movie. It's been a
    surreal experience at times. The funniest ever was watching an accountant
    give a speech about, of all things, accounting. Off went the hearing aids
    the instant he first opened his gob. Fucking hilarious it was. I couldn't
    stop laughing. People were staring at me. Funnier still, he called me
    aside after his talk and asked me was he really as funny as he had
    intended to be.

    BWAHAHAHAHHAAHHAHAHAHA! Truly, he did.

    On a thoroughly scientifically analysed whim I just bought this fucking
    bone-conducting headset for a tiny fraction of the cost of a pair of
    hearing aids. I can actually hear mice farting in the wall cavities. I
    can even hear my fucking keys clicking as I type. And all through my jaw
    bone. Fucking amazing, hey. It's like the sound is "there" inside my
    head. Funnier still, the sound quality is greatly improved by, wait for
    it, wait for it...

    Wearing ear plugs.

    Please note: Mice squeaks are not distinguishable from mice farts by the
    good of hearing, except my 75yr old mother who also has eyes like a
    shithouse rat.
