The regular auto-update installs the -generic linux image on my machine intel core i3 machine. Is it better to use -i386 kernel? What kind of machines -generic linux image supports?

The comment #5 at https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+bug/88693 is about the OpenGL applications are become faster on -i386 kernel instead of -generic images. Is it as expected?

As far as I know, -generic is just a metapackage that pulls in the latest kernel for your architecture (presumably 64bit). That bug report is very old and I don't think it should have any effect.
