    Nice initiative. I contributed my story. Looks like it's fairly common.
    There's another horror story with my tablet, which uses 32-bit UEFI, but I don't suppose they need to be bothered by that: anything booted by it freezes. Windows? Check. GRUB? Check. It sure is a real good implementation of a UEFI, eh... It was likely never tested without legacy mode, because Win7 32-bit at the time didn't have a way to do UEFI boot.

    Neat. I'm probably going to upgrade to Skylake so having a list of motherboards that work well with Linux is something I can use. Not that there are many motherboards with issues (I imagine most of the problems come from laptops which use tons of custom firmware), but it only takes one lemon to ruin an upgrade.
