The problem is that when hardware isn't supported out of the box it's far harder on Linux to get it working. Some of that is due to lack of manufacturer support but the kernel developers certaintly don't make their jobs easy.

i don't see how it can be easier. As a manufacturer provide decent specs and the community will write the driver themselves. If you are afraid of showing your specs to the world, the kernel devs have agreed to sign NDA agreements and still will write the driver for you. I don't see the how much easier it can get.
