Linux I volunteer as tech support for a small organization. For years we relied on Ubuntu on our desktops, but the users didn't like it when Ubuntu switched to the Unity interface. This article tells about our search for a replacement and why we decided on Xfce running atop Linux Mint.

Stop being dick and pretending your exception to the rule is the rule.


Stop being a dick and comprehend that's not the point being made.

Stop being a dick and maybe realize the problem is more common than you might imagine (which is logically different from saying my experience is a rule), so much so that laptop and desktop manufacturers mostly provide preinstalled and recovery partitions.

No it isn't as common as you think it is and it trivial to find and install a driver anyway.

Most network hardware comes from a few manufacturers.

My assertion is that it's more common than YOU think. I don't know the numbers, but your guess is obviously too low because it seems you have trouble acknowledging that driver problems can easily be avoided in Windows with preinstallation and recovery partitions that come with computers these days.
