Default Re: Why Linux sucks...for now.

I agree totally. I use Linux on one of my machines here at work (Red Hat 9), and my biggest issue with it has always been driver support. The main core of Linux/UNIX seems to be built for older, legacy hardware, because it's most often used as a server OS and a lot of them use older hardware. It's also much more secure than Windows. And since it's open-source software (meaning you can customize/modify/write scripts and software to suit your needs), programming geeks love it too. It could be a viable home OS someday, because once you actually get all of your hardware to work, you can run almost anything on it. But until they fix the driver support problem, it'll continue to be a distant 3rd behind Windows and Mac as a choice for home users.
