What Platforms Does Linux Support?

Linux runs on a variety of computers and devices, and is widely supported by systems created in the last 20 years. It runs on PDA's, Gaming Systems, and even novelty "watches". It can also run on systems as large as mainframes.

There are Linux distributions tailored specifically for various devices, all one need do is seek information.

Linux was written originally for Intel processor based PC's, using the hardware facilities of the 80386 processor and its successors to implement its features. The 80386 family includes the 80486 and all of the Pentium chips. However, there are now many ports to other hardware platforms.
