Debian dropped i386 support in Debian Sarge[0] in 2005. Ubuntu 
supposedly dropped[1] it in Ubuntu 10.10 which was released in 2010.  
That document could be seen as ambiguous though, though I can find 
several places referencing to it when claiming that it was dropped in 

And last of all, Linux dropped i386 support in 2012.
