If you wait for Linux to get better you are wrong. Linux will get better and better but that's not enough. What's really important is that the hardware manufacturers should put more effort into making their hardware work with Linux.
Yes, using Linux may require sometimes a little bit of effort but when you use Linux you help it get better (for your own sake) and you learn more about your computer (again, for your own sake).
