Default portability to allegedly byte compatable but non-i386 CPUs


We recently bought one of those sub $200 Everex PCs with gOS (a stripped don't Ubuntu for running mostly Google apps) and it's ok, but I'm a FreeBSD kind of guy...

So I'm wondering are the Via CPUs (which is the current iteration of the old Cyrix CPU) and the new Intel Atom CPU, which are i386 compatable but don't actually use the i386 instruction set (if I have that right... it's been about 15 years since I had those classes), are they compatible with the i386 distribution of FreeBSD?


Insert witty comment here!
