I have the P25W-V2. The only difference from the V1 is the graphics card is an 870 instead of a 770.

After installing Manjaro Linux 2015-09-07, sound only outputs from 2 of the 4 speakers and pulse audio likes to kind of glitch at boot or resume where I have to continuously mute/unmute the sound system until it “catches” and the sound finally stays unmuted. There are also the hardware buttons to control volume and an extra button to bring up the “manager” program in windows. These buttons do not work in linux and do not register as any keycodes in linux. The fn keys on the top row work out of the box. I haven't found any solutions to the issues on any support or discussion forums.

All and all, this model runs linux very well if you can get over those minor issues.
