I’ve had an older Celeron NUC and still have a 3rd Gen i5 unit which is a (seldom used now) media PC. Both have run Linux Mint at various stages of theor life with no issues. I think you will be fine. I can’t remember if the I/R receiver works in Linux but doesn’t sound like you need it.

I pre-ordered the same one on Friday – so hoping for the bundle package, too. I have an ETA of Friday, and since the offer is “While stocks last”, guess what I’ll be doing after Friday beers.
Oh, and I’m a Holo Launcher man myself, though I have the paid for version, which has a little more than the free one.
