If I was building my pc now & not 6 months ago, I'd probably be going AMD threadripper. Not because the 8700k is performing badly but I've been using blender a lot lately which can now use GPU+CPU for rendering & those extra cores would speed things along nicely. Also the price difference between a 12 core threadripper & a similar specked xeon is unbelievable.

But yeah AMD/Ryzen are definitely a serious contender & as far as I know well supported on Linux.
System: Mobo-Asus Prime Z370P II, CPU-i7 8700K, RAM-32gb DDR4 3000mhz, GPU AMD RX580 OS: Manjaro Linux
