Hardware support in PCLOS is outstanding.

And you conclude that based on<nobr> <wbr></nobr>... ?

All my hardware worked upon boot

So you tested maybe 5 devices, out of maybe 50,000 which are "out there", and you draw a general conclusion about hardware support? Nonsense!

Your machine happened to have hardware that is compatible with the distro. What percentage of hardware devices are compatible? You don't know. Would other distros have dealt with your hardware equally well? You don't know. (Distros are selecting device drivers from the same pool, so a lot of them tend to have similar hardware capabilities).
