"Your talking about hardware support out of the boks right? Which still doesnt make sence unless you compare a linux kernel that is just as old as XP."

I don't know if I understand you correctly. BC-PSD, because it's FreeBSD in its base, does not only support hardware that is compatible to the drivers available from the kernel, it also supports hardware that can be accessed via loadable kernel modules. I don't know if Linux kernels handle this the same way. Maybe, there are more drivers included in the Linux kernel by default?

Surely Linux can be compared with this list...
