This does seem sensible - I'm marking it as "Considered"
Ubuntu System Testing application
I support this idea.
Interesting idea but a conceptional challenge. It would be easier to make the hardware work with the distro than to re-select a different edition and then having to reboot into it again. I don't see this working.
i know its not always the case but i think most hardware is transcendent of de's (i have no idea about 86vs64) maybe the hardware that isn't (i.e power management) could have the option
and the ones that are (i.e wifi) could.
also shouldn't the second part be a separate idea?
I just typed out practically a whole thesis as an idea on this topic and then found your idea, so I have deleted mine and I'm promoting yours. Nice one.
(Considering I'm promoting duplicate idea finder, you would think I would know better)
I have listed several pieces of hardware that work on Gloria, Helena, And Isadora. It would be nice to be able to say so in one listing rather than having to duplicate everything.
Think I've seen a similar idea.
It would be neat indeed to add more than one computer and/or edition. Like me, I've had 3 computers at most with all different editions
* Pluto (Bedroom computer) uses Mint 7 x86.
* Jupiter (Workstation) uses Mint 8 x64.
* Venus (Laptop - or should I say Dragtop?) used Mint 8 x86.
That's a good idea, I had Elyssa earlier, now I'm having Helena, so my reports contain information about both releases, not just one.
AND there is... the Linux Mint Hardware Compatibility List at www.linuxminthcl.org

Yes! Multiple editions is a must as well as x86 or x64.
