Installation just worked out of the box, no configuration required, with wireless networking, HDMI output, and USB keyboard/mouse.
This machine was only set up to ensure I can run my vm backups in case I do something terrible to my laptop, so I don't really have much to report as far as day to day use.
Installation was a little difficult as I had to do it blindly with tab & enter most of the way due to overscan issues. xrandr --output HDMI1 --set audio force-dvi sorted that, but I only found out about that after I got it installed. It would be easier if there was a way to resize/move the installer dialog window.
