What we need is a database of products/vendors/merchants where this info can be added. The Linux hardware database used to be good, but I don't know where it went. Maybe http://www.linuxhardwaredatabase.net/. Then there is http://www.linuxcompatible.org/compatibility.html, but neither seems to concentrate on Free/Open-Code. There is http://kmuto.jp/debian/hcl/ and with a bit of effort, I am sure it could be extended. It would rock to have such a resource originate from Debian. And this could be a cool project for those well-versed with web-programming who want to contribute to Debian. In fact, I think it would be a major contribution. -- Please do not send copies of list mail to me; I read the list! .''`. martin f. krafft <email@example.com> : :' : proud Debian developer, author, administrator, and user `. `'` http://people.debian.org/~madduck - http://debiansystem.info `- Debian - when you have better things to do than fixing systems when compared to windoze, unix is an operating system.
