hey guys! a long time friend of mine/only real life linux nerd i know, has /discussed with me some of the choices when it comes to picking a unix OS. after much deliberation and debating what i really needed, we both decided i would be getting gentoo linux.
my question (because i honestly have no idea), is what architecture should i be using?
I came across http://www.gentoo.org/main/en/where.xml
and have no idea which of the following to use: alpha, amd64, arm, hppa, ia64, ppc, s390, sh, sparc, or x86.
