Summary: Put away the sledge hammer! I know everyone has been complaining about the dreaded unsupported GPU, but don't throw it away yet! The GPU worked great on 64bit MINT Linux right from the downloaded DVD! I haven't tried ubuntu yet, Mint is based on ubuntu... and ubuntu is based on debian.
Summary: The only good thing about this Mobo is that it makes a low power server under w7/linux. However, believe it or not, there are not and probably won't be Windows 8 drivers: [...] Also, there are no easily installable Linux drivers (unless you are willing to hack a lot) .
great performance in small package, very low power

Summary: just the right amount of interfaces, from legacy video to modern HDMI. boots up via USB flash. Runs Win7 PRO like a full desktop. Silent operation with 10 W of power pull at full load. Simple and beautiful layout.
Summary: I've been running this board for almost a month now with a 8GB RAM, a 32GB Crucial M4 mSATA SSD and 32-bit Ubuntu 12 LTS. The OS installed smoothly and uses all 8GB, a few tweaks to the configuration put temporary files on RAM disk and reduced the cycles on the SSD.
