So I was terrible mistaken :D. I "remember" to read about i386
support of Debian likely after 2005 on the Debian homepage and
that time compared it with information about 32-bit architecture by the
Ubuntu homepage. However, I'm seemingly mistaken :D. However, the most
important information simply is, that "Linux" dropped it in 2012.
Without research I believe that you information is correct and my
remembrance is wrong.

oops ;)
