Intel Preview: Z77 Motherboards Run Well With Linux
Phoronix: Intel Preview: Z77 Motherboards Run Well With Linux
Intel introduced their new Z77 "Panther Point" chipset earlier this month in advance of the Ivy Bridge processor launch. Questions have begun to pour in how the line-up of Z77 motherboards are working under Linux. Are there any Linux compatibility problems? Here is my brief statement on the matter for now after having already used two Z77 motherboards for a while under Linux.

Not all GNU/Linux is Ubuntu
Ubuntu has more tha 50% of GNU/Linux, it must be at every benchmark, but others too.
Arch and Sabayon, LMDE, and Fedora and OpenSUSE are good alternatives and must be also be benchmarked.
I am using Sabayon XFCE, I do like it a lot, fast as hell with a 1000 hz compiled kernel and TRUE Rolling Release.
I also have other backup installations with mint12 and LMDE plus an Ubuntu PP at Vbox.
I would like to read poroniz readers stats, probably there would e more arch and sabayon users than ubuntu ones, at least more than total ubuntu share.
As you like to benchmark ubuntu a lot, please, benchmark the next ubuntu PP LTS vs current ARCH SABAYON, LMDE Fedora and OpenSuse. And probably ubuntu will not be the best one. But i think every other distro must adapt its PPA system in order to have more software
