The machine I have has Ubuntu on it and it became remote (and thus
inconvenient to re-image) back in March before I had time to test
plain Debian. It just needed some firmware updates, but then ran
standard Ubuntu.

The firmware was not public at that time which was annoyingly unfree,
but hopefully hardware now comes with those updates on it (or they
have been published).

It's a very nice buildd for things that are parallelisable, with 32 cores.
