Does anyone know if Dell Dell OptiPlex Micro Towers are supported?
Like: Dell OptiPlex 3040, 3050, 7020, 7040, 7050.

Thank you!

The closest that I have access to (i.e. have CentOs 7 in) are "Optiplex 9020" and some "Precision Towers".

Dell sells currently 3070 and 7060 "OptiPlex Micro" with Linux (Ubuntu 18.04).

Practical question is: Does kernel have drivers for hardware that is in XYZ?
Answer: Most likely yes.

The real question is: Who should support whom?
Should hardware (Dell/HP/etc) support OS (RHEL/Ubuntu/etc) or
should OS (RHEL/Ubuntu/etc) support hardware (Dell/HP/etc)?
