Re: Please don't make it sound like Linux has poor hardware support

There's no other operating system with nearly as good hardware support as Linux, and most drivers are Free and Open Source.

If that's the case, then why do GNU/Linux users often have to use the Windows / Mac driver through a wrapper like ndiswrapper?


Seems to me like Windows (yes, even Vista nowadays from my experience) has better wireless driver support.

As an aside, again, Linux.com developers, please use <a href="http://php.net/nl2br">nl2br()</a>!

It's tedious reading other comments, such as the parent, that aren't "br" tag delimited.
