I can't find that the specific chipset selected was made public yet.
Looking at the specifications it seems like Eve V will support Linux.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe this machine has Intel chipset, Intel CPU and Intel WiFi.
If so, Eve V will easily eat Linux.
How well the desktop environment works is a matter of trying it out.
Would anyone from Eve be able to enlighten us with what chipset they chose?
I'm willing to gamble that I can run Ubuntu no problem, but would be nice to know.
