If you’re trying to build a home server like I was, consider installing Debian in your machine.
The current release is Jessie 8.7. I linked the image above to the download page. This linux distribution supports the widest range of processor architecture out there. Since most servers I know use older hardware, this distro is very much in the list for me. I highly recommend it in the server. I hesitate to recommend it in desktops because of its free (libre) software policy. This and package versions could become quite dated. But for system administrators its stability and slow paced development lends itself to a server.
