If it doesn't work without technical intervention then the *vast* majority of people are dead in the water with a *ruined* computer: One that was ruined by Linux. I do wish people would stop with this "It's really OK to have mediocre QA and wreck people's computers" crap.

I know you weren't trying to come off as belligerent, however your statement is completely ignoring certain tenets of installing Windows and Linux on PC's

Without the Dell, HP, Gateway and other OEM's preloading their drivers on their systems, anyone that formatted their PC with Windows would be on the hunt for every driver needed, as Windows only has a small snapshot of drivers for 3rd party devices.

Linux actually does better for that, in that most drivers are integrated into the distibution. That's better QA than the "no-responsibility" position that Microsoft has.
