Given that Intel's Tiger Lake platform support on Linux is mature at this point, to no real surprise the Framework Laptop was working out well on modern distributions. I tried out the Framework Laptop with Ubuntu 21.10, Clear Linux 35160, Fedora Workstation 35, and Manjaro 21.1.6.

All of these Linux distributions were playing great with the Framework Laptop and should be in good shape too for other recent distributions.

For those curious, the Arch-based Manjaro was actually delivering the best performance of the benchmarks ran on this laptop... See this result file if interested in the dozens of benchmarks carried out across Manjaro, Clear Linux, Fedora, and Ubuntu on this upgradeable Intel laptop.
