Linux Driver Support

One of the biggest complaints of Linux users is a lack of hardware support. While Linux supports more hardware than any other operating system, it doesn't support all of the hardware that Windows supports since manufacturers create drivers for Windows by default.

A new project created by Greg Kroah-Hartman aims to create Linux drivers for vendors -- free of charge! This is revolutionary and should pave the way for increased driver support in all areas of the hardware world. It seems that there is a great demand for this service, and great participation by developers as well.

Linux in the New York Times

There is a great article in the technology section of the New York Times which talks about Linux and Ubuntu specifically. This is great coverage!
