For linux on skylake you'll want a 4.6 kernel. I have ubuntu 16.04 kernel 4.6.0 nuc6i5syh. Ethernet is 1000 Mbps, no video issues.
Zorin OS 11 works out of the box, fast and reliable, plus full HW acceleration on my NUC6i5SYH.
It's based on ubuntu 15:10, I run kernel 4.2.0-23-generic.
WiFi and BT work out of the box.
Dual boot with Win 10 pro.
No glitches, graphic errors, suspend issues and what not.
Hi Ian. As you replied to 'NUC OS testing' on behalf of Intel I was wondering if you could steer me to some support. I have had absolutely no luck installing Linux on NUC5PPYH. I have been trying for 2 weeks and am on the verge of returning it to Amazon with a review listing my difficulties. I would really not like to do that and perhaps someone can help me work this out.
