It's true that if you've got hardware and software that don't work
together, you're not buying one or the other from the right vendor. It's
probably a lot easier for us to have supported the hardware, than for the
hardware vendor to have used a different chipset (which likely would've
increased the price, or decreased the possible features).

Our releasing with old versions of software is a bug we need to
continually work to *fix*, not excuse.
