The neat thing about Linux, as differs from Windows, is that you can write your own drivers! Or you can put out a public request for a driver and someone would write it. Then the driver gets distributed along with the rest of the OS - assuming it's a good driver.The advantages of Windows is hardware manfacturers make drivers that will work on your OS... so the trick with Lindows, is they need to reinvent the wheel in terms of drivers (just like Linux did) that is why Lindows is only available on those machines, and why you'll have to wait a while to add extra hardware or upgrades... no drivers... no function
For the average user writing your own drivers would be like making your own jet fuel... granted I know the advantages of Linux, but I endorsed Windows with that in the fact my grandparents are able to use it.... it is dumb enough for everyone to understand the basics and do what they need to do... I love open source, especially after the XP fiasco... so I understand but I mentioned Windows for a reason.Pseudocyber said:Valiant wrote: The neat thing about Linux, as differs from Windows, is that you can write your own drivers!
