Provided you avoid boards based on closed Nvidia hardware, it's OK. Usually
the hard bit is not that the hardware isn't supported, but that the kernel
on the installation media doesn't have this week's flavour of cheap SATA
controller compiled in, which means you have nowhere to install the OS to
compile a suitable kernel.

I simply haven't the nerve to imagine a being, a force, a cause which keeps the
planets revolving in their orbits and then suddenly stops in order to give me a
bicycle with three speeds.
