Plug and Play
Is Linux planning on supporting all hardware that is now availbale for the
Windows 95+ operating systems? Trying to convince a customer to switch to
linux when their hardware doesn't work with it, is a hard sell. Most equipment
made these days is Plug and Play, and I have found it a fight to install
some equipment I have. I would be more then willing to start programming
in Linux if I were sure that it wasn't going to be a fight to get it to work
on a buggy Plug and Play card.
