I would use Linux if it supported the hardware in my computer!
Nvidia Geforce4. Works but very messy to get going, different driver version
required for all the different Linux Distros.
Creative Soundblaster Audigy - Very basic driver, only 2 speaker support no
Internal PCI 56k modem - No driver.
Canon Ixus V2 USB camera - No driver.
LeoScan USB scanner - No driver.
Lexmark USB printer - No driver.
DVD Rom - Some support for Movie playing, but results where less than
desirable. No DTS support.
All the above works perfectly with Win2000, without any reboots or crashes.
When Linux properly supports the above lot I might be interested.
I have had Red Hat and Mandrake Linux running on my second machine,.and it
worked perfectly on that. But all the hardware on that machine (which is a
Pentium 3 500MHz) is about 6 years old and discontinued..
