What is the hardware support like for Ubuntu on servers? Can I install Ubuntu 12.04 on any server and expect everything to work?
In particular, I'm looking at SuperMicro servers (model: SM 6027R-72RFT+) and a Huawei Server (mode: TECAL RH 2285 V2)
I'm aware of the certified hardware list on Ubuntu site, however it is restricted to HP/DELL/Lenovo brands, and is a very limited list. Should I follow that list when choosing a Ubuntu Server (ver: 12.04) or do I have a more free choice?
