In the case of my Sony laptop, Sony only supports Windows XP. That means
drivers are only available for XP. Sony support does not have to answer
any questions not releated to the software that came with the laptop,
XP. I had to go to each chip makers web site and dl drivers , optomized
for some other card/laptop in order to use it for other versions of
Windows on my Sony. All not supported by Sony. BTW, Debian just
Its probably 'all about the money'
