    That is either because Windows XP is totally superior to Linux, or
    because the vendor (NVidia in this case) wrote a Windows driver, but
    they didn't write something for Linux _and_ didn't publish any specs
    for this ethernet controller. So it took some time to reverse
    engineer the Windows driver...
