Funny - I haven't even FINISHED Linux support yet :-)

Don't pin judgement on the Linux project when you're using an
INFERIOR Plug-and-Play implementation on a lame OS like Windows95
or DOS.

But *DO* voice your opinions on what you *WANT* the Linux
implementation to do/not do. I'm *ALWAYS* open for suggestions.

Agreed.

Get a DECENT PnP implimentation on a DECENT OS with software
configurable devices (PnP, PCI, PCMCIA, EISA, MCA, etc.) and
you'll have fewer headaches.

"The best programmers are lazy", so I'm told.
I haven't gotten around to seeing if it is true or not though.
