Snakeoil OS is based on Linux - as such it will work with all computers hardware out there.
The Snakeoil stock kernel is stripped down to work best for mini-ITX. Why? What is better? That's a rhetorical question that can never be answered because if you think of "better" as a mathematical problem, then "better" has no solution. Every person out there has their own idea on what is better, and what is best. Simply support a request thread in the Support & Troubleshooting section if you want a customised kernel for the motherboard you think is best.
But here here are my 2 cents. Is it better to go with modern state of the art full sized motherboards with CPUs (offering heaps of FLOPs); or go for a low power board and CPU that's stripped down to the bare essentials? Are extra FLOPs necessary? Perhaps it's simplicity that's better?
My answer - simplicity.
