Ok i'm feed up with microsoft and am making the switch to linux ( ubuntu and or fedora ). But I am having trouble finding the 64 bit vertions. I know that they are out there becuse I have seen them somewhere. Ok now I'll cut to the chase. What i'm looking for is the link to the 64 bit vertion of these 2 os'es.

Ubuntu; Fedora (pick the closest mirror in each case). You might also like to check out Mandriva.

Look at the links; they point to both 32 -bit and 64-bit versions.

Ok, my bad man. I did not understand that that was what it was.

There is also Mint. It is based off of Ubuntu but it has some stuff pre-packaged that Ubuntu does not. The next version should be out mid-May and will be based off of Ubuntu 10.04 LTS.

Here is a link to a site that lists all the major distro's and has pro's and con's for each: http://distrowatch.com/dwres.php?resource=major

To hijack this thread. Is there a place that has up to date information on hardware compatibility for Ubuntu or similar linux based operating systems?


Right now I have a Pentium D 920 processor LGA 775, 4 sticks of OCZ 1gb ram 1066, a couple SATA hard drives, a heatsink, and not much else...this computer had a mobo bite the dust a few weeks ago and since then I have built a new system using all new parts but in the interest of curiosity I would like to build a Linux desktop 64-bit. I may parlay this into some kind of file server in time. Right now my biggest hurdle seems to be finding a mobo that will not only take my processor but also take the ram and a linux system.

Hunter844, I would just go to the distro's forums and search the 'hardware' section.

A lot of Linux distros are getting better at supporting more recent hardware although there is occasional delays which is understandable as developers are trying to reverse engineer for support in many cases. I guess it's a shorter wait for hardware that profess to have Linux support.

I think the *buntus and Fedora are good choices for getting feet wet but also because these distros are bleeding edge, too. There's a lot of changes but many devs are trying to get various hardware supported. I guess you could include OpenSUSE and maybe Mandriva in that mix, too.
