The State of Ubuntu 7.04 Is Strong...

Not on my laptop.

As long the 64bit version doesn't even finishes to boot from CD I don't care how strong it is elsewhere ;)

What I don't get is why there are no drivers that have 2 parts: one part is the one that talks to the hardware and has a open unified interface (this part could even be closed source binary).
The 2nd part could be the software that connects the open interface to the OS driver interface (suppose mostly Windows).

This way open source driver programmer can program the 2nd stage for their beloved OS without the need of diving too much into these things.

Maybe I don't get it (why we don't have this in place) because I'm not a driver programmer ;)
