Computer makers push device builders for Linux-compatible hardware

Great news. It's about bloody time. If the major Linux distros are able install appropriate drivers out of the box, 80% of Linux forums' support requests will vanish overnight, along with 80% of the excuses people give for not using Linux.

I'm cynical enough to think that the manufacturers will still find some way to screw this up, but it's a positive sign that things are changing for the better.
