Have gone for an ASRock H270M-ITX/ac Mini-ITX board which has Intel H270 Express and which can support Kaby Lake Core LGA1151 processors and it runs the ultra low voltage DDR4. This board will put out a max of 35W running an 2.8GHz i5 processor at full steam. Hope the Fedora works out okay.

I have decided to go for a mini-ATX form factor chassis and also the build will be completely fanless and therefore almost silent (hopefully). Once we manage to get the build working I'll come back with the full spec details and all the issues that arise. This is gonna be fun.

That's a really helpful answer. Thank you for taking the time. It sounds like a nice spec you've got there BTW.

It doesn't have to be the 'best' Linux desktop option because as you rightly say than can be quite subjective. But surely the Linux community can at least agree on whether Fedora is a good option. From what I read Fedora is relatively mature offering and quite stable too. It also takes advantage of newly designed and developed graphics subsystem, which even though some people appear to complain about the majority of Linux commentators I have read view this as a positive feature. I think for my initial needs I would like to have a decent web browsing experience and a good email client.

Can you tell me what kind of hardware configuration you are using for your Fedora 25? Were the problems you experienced with other Linux OSs related to hardware compatibility or other issues like OS features etc. I'm not worried about bugs because every OS has them right and so that would not be a deal breaker for me. In my opinion it would be hypocritical after decades of learning to live with the Microsoft BSOD to demand 'higher standards' of open source freeware.

Okay, I think I understand what you are saying - the Fedora hardware compatibility issues are about available drivers for hardware, rather than specific hardware not supporting the OS. As for Freeware, I'm a big user of it in the Windows environment but like almost everyone get trapped by Microsoft with their Office suite. A long time back I used Lotus Smartsuite and applications like Lotus123 were bigger than Excel (running on DOS 3.1 off 5+1/4" floppies).

I intend to build the hardware myself, as I did for my Windows XP desktop. What motherboards, graphics cards, sound cards and NIC cards is Fedora 26 compatible with? Is there a hardware compatibility list at all for Fedora 26? Is there any hardware that I must stay away from at all costs? Thanks for any help and guidance.
