Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Canonical, the company behind Ubuntu Linux, has struck back at claims made by Microsoft's Brandon LeBlanc about Windows' success in netbooks compared to Linux. Most of the claims made by LeBlanc are refuted quite accurately by Canonical's Chris Kenyon in a blog post titled "Microsoft, FUD and the netbook market".

My Canon printer isn't supported by Intrepid Ibex at least.

I just posted a link to the OpenPrinting page for the Canon LBP2900 which indicates that Canon provide perfectly good drivers from their website. Have you tried them?

Besides which I am still correct in saying that Linux supports more consumer hardware out of the box than Windows and that there is hardware which does not have Windows drivers just as there is hardware which does not have Linux drivers.

Your individual anecdote doesn't make a case study, and it does neither refutes nor strengthens the claims that either Microsoft or Conanical are making.
