Just looking at the Debian Ports page, how many of these architectures do I own?
|Alpha||✗||Good, working Alpha hardware is getting hard to obtain these days.|
|amd64 (x86-64)||✓||Obviously …|
|ARM (32 bit)||✓||I don’t really care about anything less than ARM version 7 these days, although I do have a Sheevaplug which I think is v5 or v6. My “go-to” 32 bit ARM board is the Cubietruck.|
|ARM (64 bit)||✓||I don’t own, but have under my desk at work, the Applied Micro X-gene (picture), and a lovely piece of kit it is too.|
|i386||✓||I own a Lenovo X60s laptop, which is one of the few 32 bit Intel processors with (very slow) hardware virtualization|
|ia64||✓||HP Itanium RX2620|
|M68K||✗||As I started out my professional career writing 68k assembler, I’d love to buy an MVME crate, but incredibly they go for upwards of $1000 on ebay, even 20 years after they stopped being made.|
|MIPS||✓/✗||I just bought the MIPS Creator CI20. I don’t own any Big Endian MIPS hardware, nor any 64 bit MIPS hardware.|
|OpenRISC||✓||I have this burned into an FPGA, but in storage.|
|PPC (32 bit)||✗||I recently sent a couple of old 32 bit Mac G4s to recycling.|
|PPC/POWER (64 bit)||✓/✗||I own a Mac G5 running Linux (picture). However I don’t own, and as far as I know cannot get my hands on any of the more interesting POWER7 or POWER8 hardware, although I have remote access to it through Red Hat.|
|s390/s390x||✗||Similar to ppc64, no possible way to own it, but I am able to remote access it through Red Hat.|
|SPARC (32 bit)||✓||Currently sitting in storage, but it’s there and it used to run Linux, albeit with only 128 MB of RAM|
|SPARC (64 bit)||✗||Is it possible to buy 64 bit SPARC hardware for a reasonable price?|
Looks like I’m about half way there!
