WhiteBox had short fame before CentOS took over the RHEL clone segment.

Graeme: you probably want to run a RHEL clone like CentOS and a
bleeding-edge distribution like Fedora (even Fedora devel if you're
aventurous). The RHEL clone will get you the same kernel level most
enterprise users are using. The Bleeding edge distribution will show you
what is being worked on now, with the associated drawbacks (young not
100% stabilized code, frequent updates).

These days a lot of hardware just works, especially motherboards with
intel chipsets. The remaining black spots are GFX cards (intel and
discrete AMD are supposed to be getting there) and stuff like webcams.

You have the list of hardware people are requesting a driver for (ie
does not have a driver yet) here

it is of course not complete, does not apply to distributions with
ancien kernels like WhiteBox 4, etc
