AMD does not confirm that any of its products such as Chipsets, Video Cards and Processors will run Linux and or Ubuntu. I have multiple (more than 10) motherboards with the 990FX chipset and have multiple FX Processors and have multiple FirePro and Radeon Cards.
I have multiple sets of 4x4GB and 4x8GB of 1866 memory. I also have multiple OCZ's fastest SSD's. Contacting AMD or their Motherboard manufacturers results in declinations about Linux or Ubuntu support. I am tired of paying for Windows repeatedly for each and every OEM License. Every time a hardware malfunctions and has to be replaced a new Windows License has to be purchased.
Whether it is Windows 7 Pro or Windows 8 pro Licenses have to be purchased after every hardware change. If an attempt is made to reactivate Windows it results in the destruction of the interface of the OCZ SSD's.
I am seriously considering moving to the Linux or Ubuntu community. I am scared that all my hardware will not accept a Linux or Ubuntu installation. I am anxiously requesting help from Ubuntu and the Ubuntu community to make Ubuntu work with the Hardware that I already have. Thanking you in anticipation of your kind and considerate help and support.
