I am thinking about getting myself an old mid-range server to use as a test PC or workstation.
These computers are most likely to have Xeon/Opteron CPU's, or maybe even IBM PowerPC.
I guess Linux Mint will run on these CPU's, since it is based on Ubuntu, which is based on Debian. Debian runs on every CPU I can name, even on sparc and other exotic ones. But then you need a special Debian CD for sparc.
When I download a new Mint version, i get to choose between 64 and 32 bit. Does this mean that those versions will work with Xeon/Opteron? (the latest being 64 bit)
I just like to have this confirmed, i don't want to buy something that doesn't run Linux Mint, even if it is cheap.
