GNU, GPL, Open Source When Windows Vista was launched, the Free Software Foundation started its BadVista campaign, which was aimed at informing users about what the FSF considered user-restrictive features in Vista. Luckily for the FSF, Vista didn't really need a bad-mouthing campaign to fail. Now that Windows 7 is receiving a lot of positive press, the FSF dusted off the BadVista drum, and gave it a fresh coat of paint.

When are we going to see the same level of hardware support as Windows

You want GNU/Linux to stop supporting legacy hardware and 50% of the known existing hardware to be like Windows ? ... Wait for the hardware OEM/ODM maker to make the driver ?

webcams that conform to UVC standards

That one is so laughable. Sugesting all Webcam that conform to it and you calling it a standard ...

the UVC implemented in Linux is only 1/3 complete.

8 out of 15 ... That's more then half , and the rest is not some not really needed proprietary crap by any chance ? That have other alternative ?

"At the moment, manufacturers of usb bridge and camera sensor did not help us."

Then there is the issue of binary drivers where compatibility is broken with each release of the kernel.

That's the problem of the binary maker ...

I'm all for a good debate

You ? No ... ref your comment history.

I'd make a sizable donation

Lol ...

that aren't written by people who abuse users who provide constructive feedback?

Someone else had enough of your nonsense ? Got a link to your constructive feedback so I can laugh at you there too ?

What in/sane developer would hop on a plane , go to New-Zealand , just for the privilege of abusing poor kaiwai ? Got any pics or video ?

Your freetard keyboard driver keeps adding a space before each question mark. Perfect.
