I have a Minnowboard Max (A system I purchased myself) and run Ubuntu on it to complement my W7 corporate desktop. Originally I had connected the Minnowboard to one of my monitors but this was annoying since I had to switch input devices to control it. I now use X2Go to bring up a KDE session on one of my desktop monitors to allow easy cut-n-paste and control without the need to switch back and forth physically. Having the session preserved is great too! This isn't a corporate initiative or anything, just something to make life easier for myself instead of running Ubuntu in a VM, for example.
