Pros: Worked with no issues on Linux Mint 18.2 Cinnamon and Manjaro 17.1.1. Autologin issues with Cinnamon Mint 18.3.
Entire build from ground up took less than an hour. Not a gamer, streaming, browsing, and office applications only.
Overall Review: Long time linux user always concerned with potential video adapter conflicts. There were none using Mint 18.2 and Manjaro 17.1.1.
Also installed Windows 10 Pro with no problems.

Pros: Installed Linux Mint Cinnamon 18.2 and Manjaro 17.1.1 with no issues. Mint 18.3 wouldn't autologin, others reported same problem, I like that feature so I went back to 18.2. Also installed Windows 10 Pro with no issues. Using AMD A8-9600 Bristol CPU.
Not a gamer. Streaming, browsing and office applications only.
Pros: Install couldn't have been easier. Replacement mobo. Swapped out parts in under 30 minutes. Booted up and initial OS installation was completed in about 20 minutes. Haven't encounter any problems whatsoever. I tri-booted with Windows 10, Linux Mint 18 and Debian 9.1; all installed with no problems. I am not a gamer. I am using this computer for Excel, streaming video, and web browsing, nothing that requires heavy CPU usage. Haven't tried onboard video, my CPU has video built in.
Audio is okay by me but I'm not an audiophile.
Cons: None at this point. Only been running a few days.
Overall Review: Seems like a good budget board.
Intel Pentium G3220 CPU, 8 gig RAM.
