    It's been months since the release. I'm going to keep an eye on threadripper for a little server I've got.

    What's better now, CentOS or Ubuntu? I know, RHEL SUSE Arch Debian vanilla. But of those two, are the kernel problems fixed?

    Any recent distro should work; just make sure you're running kernel 4.10 or later, since earlier kernels lack important stability and feature patches for Ryzen.

    A hint on the Ubuntu side - 16.04.3 LTS HWE.

    Yea HWE is new as of 16.04.02 I believe. You have to run the installer to get it, IIRC.

    I've switched most things to Ubuntu LTS HWE from CentOS.
