Parent article: Red Hat Linux ends - now what?
Neglected in the discussion I have seen is the subject
of non-Intel platforms. Red Hat Linux used to be available
on several, but RH gradually dropped them as the release
Fedora is released *only* for x86, and is compiled for the
Pentium instruction set. There is no Opteron, no Alpha,
no PowerPC, no ARM, no MIPS, no Itanic. At the moment, the
lack of Opteron and ARM probably hurt most. Debian is on ARM,
but not Opteron. Suse may be the only viable Opteron alternative,
at the moment.
Are the Fedora principals planning Opteron support in future
