Ok, this becomes a bit OT here, but let me just remark that Linux today 
supports a *lot* of hardware, and that quite a few drivers (some RAID 
controllers, Intel SATA stuff, most of the S/390 and a lot of the HPPA 
stuff, I'm sure there's more) are actually actively supported by hardware 
vendors.  So you seem to live in a parallel universe at least to some 
degree.
