Rod Gray: Thank you very much for joining the Intel® NUC communities.
In regard to your inquiry, the tests done by Intel on the NUC were done using Windows, however, we know that a lot of NUC owners are using it successfully on many different Linux distros. So, I encourage all the peers viewing this thread that if they have any information or suggestions about which Linux distro to use with the NUC to post their comments on this thread.
Additionally on the link below you will see the list of operating systems that have been reported to work properly with the NUC, in there you will find some Linux distros:
Any further questions, please let me know.
