The worst that can happen is that a person without ideological motivation
tries Linux and then is disappointed because all the mailing lists will
tell them 'ah, you use the foo driver. Sorry, we can't help you there'.
Better such a person does not try Linux until a fully supported driver for
their hardware is available. Those people will not understand the arguments
about *why* their particular hardware is only half-supported.
