Yes. What's your point?
You still claim all of your hardware is unsupported? I still don't believe you.
What was unsupported in Linux for me? A scanner and a camera. That was in Mdk 9.1. They were fine now. (I don't count the Pinnacle capture card, since I knw that was never going to work, that's *why* I have one Windows dual booter still, for video capture. The other TV card is a supported on, I just never had it working until now).
Some do, some don't . Depends on the user and how knowledgeable he is, nhow willing to look up a few things, and learn. Don't brand all users with your ignorance and stupidity.
You guys can whine, complain and blame
You admit the problem is beyond the developers' control. Yet you *still* blame them, insult them, and buttume it's all Linux's fault. You really are a stupid brainwashed privateshead, privatesyboy.

No one here, to my knowledge, has ever said it will support *all* hardware. But it does support a huge and much greater range than Windows ever will. The drawback with Windows is that it is tied to one hardware platform. Linux is far more adaptable.

I might not quite understand what you are talking about here, but what does it mean that a specific operating system is a requirement...
Funny thing. I have a TV card in my 'FrankenPC'. Up to now, I couldn't get it going with Mandrake 9.1 (although it's a supported card). Yesterday I installed Mandriva LE 2005 (the free version). It showed immediately when I reached the configuration stage of the install. That's what happens with open source. Things improve.
It offers plenty. If it offers nothing to you, fine, go away, you have zero reason for remaining here.
You call us weenies and silly names like that, thinking it will make you look big and adult. Actually, it just makes you look like a whining loser.

I don't have a turd in my pocket, privatesyboy. I mean, 'we', as advocates in this group.
