"linux doesn't have enough cutesy-poo dancing monkeys."

I can agree with this! We need some plugins that will have dancing Monkeys and maybe some squirrels that eat your application when you close it.

As far as Linux and hard ware goes, others have answered that, I'll just add that most wireless cards do work fine in Linux, and if someone has an issue with one, I always just recommend that they buy an Intel wireless card. They're inexpensive, and work flawlessly with Linux. Winmodems are also supposed to work with the right driver. The odd thing about that though, is that the company that provides the full driver charges 15 USD. For 20 USD you can buy hardware modem that will work a lot better. Maybe even less now.

As far as applications go, Wine is making huge inroads lately in getting things to actually work quite well (I remember back in the day, the only program I could EVER get to even load was notepad, and that usually crashed on me.) Granted since there are really a billion different ways for Windows apps to work, it's almost impossible for any API layer to work 100%. Hell, even Windows itself isn't 100% compatible with other versions of Windows. How many people right now are saying the same things as you listed about Vista?
