In any case the amd 64 isos can be used on intel.

Its just labeled as AMD 64 to differentiate it from IA64 and is also labeled as x86-64 and x64

Like MadmanRB stated above, it is. :)

 

The more one runs their choice of Linux, the more one will learn & therefore the less one will boot into Windows (or whatever other OS installed). The main thing, is finding the Linux distro that's comfortable for the person to run, some may try a dozen or more to find the right one, as did myself. When one finds their distro, there'll be no question, it'll usually be love at first sight, as it was with me when I first tried Linux Mint at the suggestion of a king Moderator on a prominent Linux forum. :)

 

THat's the main things, finding the right distro & then using it. None are a 1:1 clone of Windows, I'll make that clear from the start. Yet these were never intended to be such, Linux OS's are their own brands, there's many apps that can be used for the same purpose as any other OS, in some cases, many more choices. 

 

Even after 8+ years of running Linux Mint, I'm going to state point blank, am not an expert at this at all, though do know how to install & maintain the OS, plus can learn whatever's needed when the situation arises, be it installing a new GPU or other piece of hardware, or learning to run virtual machines. My Linux journey has been a great one, wouldn't trade the experience for anything. :)
