Thread: AMD64 Linux?

    AMD64 Linux?

    Is there any free Linux versions for AMD64? Debian's isn't production and RH and SuSE's are all super expensive.

    hi ash,
    i think any distro should work because it is 32 bit compatible, f course much recompiling would be in order.

    The 2.6 and Fedora Core 2.4 have the option to use the Opteron/AMD64.

    SuSE 9.0 is available for AMD64 and priced at $120 I think that's the only consumer distro available at the moment with 64bit support.

    SuSE's server software is almost $800! I'm sure it's worth it but thats a lot of money!

    I talked to SuSE yesterday and found out you have to pay $650 USD per yer for updates/security updates on AMD64 SuSE. Wow, thats insane. It makes Red Hats $1800 USD AMD64 port seem more attractive since you don't pay yearly and have longer life cycles ... but still I swear I am paying MS prices for Linux. Linux is better but holy crap it's suppose to be cheaper!

    Because it is a 1U server with some specific hardware that is supported in enterprise Linux versions only ... unless you do it yourself which is fine by me but I don't think that admins know much more than installing rpms.

    Companies have to make money. If the SUSE server product is better, its worth the money. Still a better deal than getting into bed with Bill Gates.
