Ever have one of those moments where your fingers type before your brain gets involved?
Most people do, at least occasionally.
That brings me to the subject of my previous post.
Given just how stupid this question was, I was quite amazed at the polite nature of the replies.
It's clear to me now that i386 is just a name for all x86 architectures, not a specific processor.
So THANK YOU for your patient responses!
And Thanx Again for all of your hard work on FreeBSD.

Why doesn't the FreeBSD project support a 32bit intel architecture newer than 386?
FreeBSD does support all x86 platforms newer than the 80386. We do not
support the 80386 at all. For historical reasons we call the platform
i386. Changing the name would be difficult and largely pointless i386.
