I think I disagree a bit on the hardware front - honestly, I remember far more issues with, say Mandrake 7 than I ever anticipate with PCLOS/Mandriva/Buntu/Fedora.

Remember winmodems? Awkward X configs? Hell, nowadays you can be pretty sure your hardware will just work, configure itself, and make life easier.

While yes, some pace has accelerated, I think hardware is much more consolidated nowadays.

Oh, and as for apple...didn't they always just support a limited set of hardware?

I dunno. I agree with most of what you said ;)

Indeed, it used to be worse. What I really mean is that in the past I don't remember so much hardware being released and upgraded so often. So how could small operating systems keep up? And indeed when I try them I prefer VMware.

As to Apple yes, they have always supported their own hardware. What I mean is that they have called themselves out of "the hardware competition", something that small operating system couldn't do, because I very much doubt people would buy a SkyOS PC, or a Zeta, Haiku or Syllable one.
