Which distros run smoothly with the new Z97 motherboards?

Forums: 

I hope to soon build a new system with only Linux, no Windows. I hope to be able to download Linux Mint, Ubuntu, and/or Debian to a flash drive and install to my SSD.

Will the Linux kernel enable installation to a Z97 board, or do I have to seek out drivers for each distro and board? Are the drivers ready or will I have to wait a few months?

Thanks,
PeteD
