If those i386 packages are not required anymore, why were they left on the system by the upgrade scripts, on the first place?

Did Windows Xp work out of the box? NOOOOO and it took over a year to fix it, and then 2 more years to get an updated system.
I was in a mall (of all places waiting to see Live Free or Die Hard) last night and there was a Dell exhibit of laptops with Windows Vista Ultra on them. Actually my son was messing with them.
We were trying to read the system info screen that says Intel core 2 dual, 2048 MB, 2.66 Ghertz, etc.
It kept minimizing and the guys in charge of the display didn't have root, nor did they know why it did that.
After a third attempt, the system rebooted.
Some day we'll all use FreeBSD.
