Highly depends on a distro, both what you can easily do and what kernels they make available. Not every distro is trying to be on a the cutting edge of testing new stuff and some go with stability instead.

Considering how everything is "open" it takes way too long in Linux world to adopt new hardware features, often due to a change being needed in Kernel and those in charge of approving those changes don't want to change things. Monolithic kernel... they really should change that already.
