i've enjoyed linux on a medion computer with a mirrored mobo for years, that required any nvidia card other than the one it came with, to be mounted upside down.
and it had other weird things. that prevented some little things from working ... but after a while fixes appear now & then
good luck ;-)
Can I get some PC-BSD expertise on a Linux question below? I promise, it's BSD-related. In fact, it'd be really great if somebody familiar with both PC-BSD and Ubuntu could contribute to the Ubuntu wiki on this subject.
PC-BSD is a user friendly desktop Operating System based on FreeBSD.
Known widely for its stability and security in server environments, FreeBSD provides an excellent base on which to build a desktop operating system.
PC-BSD uses a host of popular open source window managers and uses a custom-tailored application installer that puts popular applications in easy reach of users.
