The time has come to say goodbye. For almost two years now I’ve seeded the Lowarch ISO and made it available for download either via bittorrent or from a free hosting site.
But now it’s something like three years old, really. Even archlinux-i586.org hasn’t seen an update in more than a year, and holding on to an ISO that predates that by two years is almost silly.
Good times were had, but they are done now. There are still Pentium-era machines out there in serviceable condition, but there’s no need to clutch to that ISO as if it were some sort of crucial tool.
From where I stand though, there are still some options for 586-based machines, to include Debian and (almost) anything Debian-based, Slitaz, and of course ground-level distros like Crux, Gentoo or Linux From Scratch.
With that many solid, reliable and active options out in the wild, there’s no reason to carry a torch. Cheers and salud.
