I'm sure plenty of us are... is there a more specific combination you had in mind?

No, I just wondered how well it works or if there are issues with it. I’m thinking to upgrade my video editing/ gaming machine (from Sandybridge!) to Ryzen and it looks like thunderbolt equipped mobos are thin on the ground. Looking to the future, basically.

It's a mixed bag currently. It's kinda like firewire in its heyday, it should all just work but isn't quite there.

Admittedly once it's up and running, it's largely great to work with. Initial configuration and getting the right combination of adaptors is often the key here. Make sure you read up on the relevant manufactures support pages before you buy and you should be fine.
