Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y A Computerworld blog post reads: "You gotta love it. Microsoft has decided that it will ho ahead and kill off easy access to XP on June 30th. On behalf of desktop Linux users everywhere, and our first cousins, the Mac fans, thanks. You've given us the best shot we'll ever have of taking the desktop."

That's right, tell her to try linux so she can start cursing it when her printer or whatever piece of hardware doesn't work well under it.

In the past five years, my sole aggravations with hardware under Linux have been:
Broadcom 43xx chipset (now supported in the 2.6 kernel)
Creative mp3 player (would have been recognized if I had installed Amarok)
Hauppauge DVR card's IR
Brief kernel regression with audio support in BTTV-based tuner cards
Switching between multiple audio cards in Mythbox between apps (solved by removing extraneous card)

Considering how few people are building experimental DVRs with Linux, you could safely ignore the last three on that list.
