Re: ASUS Computers Ubuntu works well on.
I have the ASUS M2NPV-VM with AM2. The board is no longer marketed. Features were Firewire in and HDTV signal out. Many dissatisfied users trying this moBoard with various flavors of Windows.
I had a computer factory assemble this box. They added a front panel for USB / audio. nVidia geForce 6100. The computer came delivered with MiniDOS -- I kept hitting the power button not realizing the >$ prompt takes milliseconds to load and run the computer. Drake-64 Ubuntu installed in 11 minutes flat. Every Ubuntu has run on the machine without problems.
No problems. I am very fond of the firewire 1394 capture and I hope this board lasts forever.
I liked the ASUS / AMD combination so well, I ordered a factory deal with the M4A87TD / AMD Phenom-64 hexacore. Intially, some problems with the Radeon GPU and that is Radeon driver issue. The Radeon was garbling some of the Ubuntu GUI.
