Jason Perlow throws a slew of Linux distributions at the IBM Intellistation E Pro and encounters no problems:

"The Intellistation represents the latest in IBM PC workstation technology. What impresses us most about this machine is not how innovative it is but how innovative it isn't. The Intellistation is everything that you wouldn't expect a classic IBM product to be -- a totally hassle-free, non-proprietary, off-the-shelf generic PC that's extremely well supported...."

"We installed Red Hat 6.2, Red Hat 7.0, Caldera OpenDesktop 2.4, Mandrake 7.2 and SuSE 7.0 on this machine, all without incident. Frankly, we were hoping something would go awry and that there would be some surprise to report; shockingly, nothing went wrong. There's not a heck of a lot to say. Besides its black, Darth-Vaderesque exterior, it's a totally standard machine that's extremely well engineered, and we didn't find a single Linux distribution that didn't run on it properly."
