Compatible with the most modern hardware Linux Ditro
Date: 29 Oct 2005 12:40:00 -0700
I'm thinking of offering linux as an alternative to windows to my
customers who don't like paying a fortune for a software. I've some
fears though... The thing that I'm the most affraid of is modern
hardware compatibility. I mean...What's the point if the user can't
install the new printer he just bought himself. My mother can install a
printer on Windows XP!!!! That's something believe me!
I'd like to know: What is the linux distro which provides the easiest
way to install hardware and peripherals and which is the most
compatible with modern hardware and peripherals? Any ideas?
A simple example: I once installed Mepis on one of my computers.
Everything was cool, except that I couldn't install my Epson printer on
it (or, at least, it would have need several hours of research to find
out how to do it).
