Beginning of the end of Linux Driver issues... has an article on major OEM's (ASUS, Dell, Hewlett-Packard, and Lenovo) would put language into their acquisition contracts with their suppliers to require either Linux drivers or open api's to speed Linux driver development. In the last couple of years driver problems have gone from show stoppers to annoyances, but this, combined with the ever growing install base of Linux, promises to make driver issues a thing of the past. I was at Smart & Final the other day and picked up a usb key, and was amused to see that in addition to the windows logo, it had a linux penguin.
