Driver issues are the biggest PITA. I didn't run Linux on my laptop for the longest time because it had a Broadcom wireless chip. I switched to an Atheros PCMCIA card, so I could use all 64 glorious bits on my CPU. (There was no 64 bit windows driver I could steal). If ATI, Atheros, or NVidia are willing to post drivers, I don't see why distros need to be categorically opposed to providing some degree of support.
