Well, if it is just lamp, ldap etc etc, it just works out of the box.
I can't tell iv any flavour of virtualisation will work, as my machine
just have 512MB mem in them.
In case you have something that creates lots of hw-interrupts, you are
probably far better off with sparc archticture:
Due to backwards compatibility intel based PC's still have to be
compatible with the very old IBM-PC design.
If it is just sip/iax you want, why not? I presume you don't want to
stream & convert a couple of hundreds hifi connections...
Even for that, there are some debates wether intel or amd is better ;-)
otoh, with those new intel-boxes, one can take advantage of the latest
cpu-enhancements (AES-intructions), nice for encryption (vpn/disk)
and you can use high-res video boards.
