OpenSUSE 13.1, RHEL 7, CentOS 7 (3d yes, requires kernel upgrade for touchpad), Debian 7 (requires kernel upgrade for touchpad and still no 3d), and similar distributions based on an older software stack may not have 3d acceleration support until newer releases are out, and may require a kernel upgrade to resolve touchpad issues. Brightness keys can be supported on older versions with a tweak of the GRUB configuration file.

Fedora 20+, Ubuntu 14.04+, Lubuntu 14.04+, Peppermint Linux 5+, Kubuntu 14.04+, Linux Mint 17+, OpenSUSE 13.2, and other recent distributions work out of the box.

Trisquel 7 is supported out of the box.
