If you’re going to spend an hour downloading a copy of Linux, make sure you get the version that’ll actually run on your box.
I’ve got this old machine I use to run linux on, nothing fancy. Decided it was time for an upgrade, so I grabbed the ISO with my laptop and went to install it. Only to find the x64 version I’d apparently grabbed was not compatible with my computer.
There’s 650mb and an hour of my life I’m not getting back.
