Short version: if your kernel is 3.14 or greater, everything is supported.
Long version: if your kernel is 3.14 everything is supported, but I can’t speak to what every distro has compiled into it, or has modules for, generally speaking I know I tend to run Fedora on my MAXes, and I know one of the interns has a tendency to run Mint, and neither of us has had any issues with any of the drivers (outside of needing board files to make specific SPI or I2C devices work).

Subject: [MinnowBoard] Distro version vs peripherals support.
I just received a couple of MinnowMax that I have ordered on July. Now I have to decide on what distro I will put my time on. My main consideration is the support of peripherals (GPIO, Serial ports, SPI, etc). I know the eLinux page "Minnowboard:MinnowMaxDistros", but there is not much information on what distros should ease the work with these peripherals. I remember have read something about the support of the Atom processor could be better on newer kernel version. Should I worry about the Kernel Version more than the distro?.
