Over here in the UK I found a company the builds to order, and are quite happy
to do so with no OS installed with the knowledge you are going to run Linux on
it, so will use known supported peripherals. They are not cheap, but I've now
had two machines from them and in both cases all I needed to to was install
from CD.

The latest one is a quad core Ryzen and is just over a year old now - sings
like a bird :)

Exchange them and we can both have a poem, a tune, and a song.
