Ubuntu 8.04 on Jetway 7F2WE1G Mini-ITX board. Worked OOB. Removed CPU fan, case fan is sufficient to keep CPU a few degrees above ambient (idle). This is my seventh Linux system so far, and caused the least issues or problems That said, this box is very basic, just 80 gig SATA disk, no video effects. Just browsing and downloading. And webserver. This box replaced an aging Via Epia (800 MHz C3) which was getting too slow. The Epia ran 7.04 with also few issues.
