Linux still supports only about 1/3 of the hardware that Vista does

Besides getting numbers out of your rear, you actually meant 1/3 of the "designed for windows" stuff, right?

without the need of compiling kernel by hand every time you want some new hardware piece to work.

Exagerate much?

and seriously, as long as kernel devs try to force hardware makers to give away their IP

Good thing they don't force anyone to give away anything.
