I bow to your superior googling skills.  I found nothing that even
mentioned Linux and this model of system.

Yeah in theory the advantage of this system is price.  This box was well
under half the price of a similar iMac and it seems decent enough under
Windows but if it won't run a proper OS I guess I'll have to take it

Also is there any advantage to "real video" if I don't play games?  My
work machine has a decent Nvidia card and my laptop has an Intel
integrated chipset - I can't see any difference in normal use.
