Ok seriously, what have you been smoking? by the sound of this it's some pretty strong stuff.
I, as a pretty run-of the mill computer nerd have one my duty in keeping the economy afloat with my hardware purchases: regular upgrades, replacements and other additions to my computer have been done over the years. And all this time since 2004, when I permanently switched to Gentoo Linux and have flat-out refused to go back, have I come across a piece of hardware that _did not_ work effortlessly on either my PC or my laptop.
And I'm not talking about a regular mouse (Logitech G5, and before that a MX510, 7 (seven) buttons, and they all work perfectly), new harddisks (plug in, boot up, format and mount: and that's because I like to do this the hard way), Dualscreen (through NVidia Twinview, has been working for 4 years straight), or even a scanner (which is a simple USB scanner which does not even work on the Macs at work, yet it works at the push of a button on my laptop running Debian).
As for exotic hardware: the fingerprint scanner and the accellerometers in my IBM thinkpad work better in Debian than they ever did on Windows. (Although I agree that that's not much of a comparison, as I reformatted the laptop about 15 minutes after I recieved it.) Wacom tablets have likewise been a module away from working. NVidia drivers will make any NV graphics card run like a maniac and even though ATI is not as reliable with their drivers, they to are at least trying to implement their features for the community to enjoy.
Drivers, in recent distro's, are all about enabling a kernel option (and even that is mostly a package install away), so unless you have some really freaky hardware I have to call bullshit on this story. If you run a recent distro everything *will* work, the Linux kernel recognizes more hardware out of the box than *any* Windows version has ever done, and runs on more hardware than all the Windows versions *combined* do.
Bye-bye karma, but this needed to be said.
