Re: Supporting the installation of Ubuntu 13.04 on AMD machines
The processor is never a problem with Linux. The only way you can tell if your computer will work fine with Linux, is to try it. You can boot up your computer from the Ubuntu CD and try it out risk-free, and when you find that it all works you can install Ubuntu. Chances are that your computer is compatible.

I try to treat the cause, not the symptom. I avoid the terminal in instructions, unless it's easier or necessary. My instructions will work within the Ubuntu system, instead of breaking or subverting it. Those are the three guarantees to the helpee.
