Lately I got more and more the feeling that hardware vendors are more and more extending their support for Linux.
However, it’s still far from perfect and not all companies have muche experience with interacting with the Linux community. Some companies still seem to be hestitant to be kind to Linux-users.
If we could show them that their products really are used by Linux-users and what products cause the most problems, it could encourage them to improve the Linux support.
What I suggested at Brainstorm is to start, in cooperation with other distributions, hardware vendors and maybe upstream projects, a survey to collect data about the hardware that is used the most frequently and what hardware causes the most problems.
