From time to time, I will post to this thread, information about my experiences with hardware on my Linux computers. I undertake this due to two recent instances that I had to return merchandise to the vendor due to an inability to make it work on "my" network. Getting it right the first time will help the user and the vendor.
If every manufacturer provided Linux drivers with their products this effort would not be needed. Until then we can help each other from making costly mistakes.
Others are encouraged to share your experiences.
