SuSE, openSUSE And another popular Linux distribution pushes a new release out the door. This time around, it's openSUSE, as they just released version 12.1. Other than the usual latest and greatest version of all the open source desktops and associated tools, there's a few other interesting tidbits in this release as well.

How can you possibly blame Linux because Intel doesn't provide drivers?

I am not blaming Linux, I am just trying to use it, seeing that my hardware doesn't work, trying to find some way to make it work and eventually have to give up on Linux.
This isn't a matter of blaming Linux. It is a matter of "too bad, doesn't work on my hardware, back to Windows".

and Intel IS making drivers for lots of their hardware. They also DID make drivers for the ICH5R and Linux and then the kernel changed so much that "softraid" basically became impossible. Not going to go through that piece of history now but it wasn't pretty. Intel also did make drivers for the 945 but as somebody mentioned they work on some dists, but not on others
