Linux has the drivers built in typically. The boot loader process doesn't work on the new ones, they will hard brick if you try. There is root access available, I believe it's in the 7" general section.
Edit: looking for link, don't think root exploit works between devices a, think it's specific per model, and I only see the 7" one offhand. They really need to separate the new kindle from the last one so this info is easier to find...
Edit2: in my confusion (still awk confused) I thought the xzecond gen HD was only available in a 7" model because of how the device is listed under support on their site. I'm kinda sleepy don't feel like remembering tonight.
