Cons: No Linux drivers for the network port - that's unheard of these days. I could boot from the network, but as soon as my Linux install would start it couldn't find the network card. We installed on another network card, but even after install, no drivers for the mobo port.
Pros: It's a great motherboard for what it's worth
Cons: I've had the motherboard for about 1-2 months, and the motherboard seems to have already failed. I initially thought it was the power supply, replaced the power supply and reset the BIOs and the computer will still not boot.
