Excuse me for splitting hairs, but Linux was written for 386s (a 32-bit
protected mode processor, compared to the 286 which is a 16-bit
protected mode processor). It was aimed at what was high end at the
time. In fact I remember people complaining about this requirement, as
at the time people mostly had 286s.
