Agreed.

That would be awesome. So many people are waiting for such a list.

How about something linked with Smolt ? You report your hardware with Smolt,
it takes you to a webpage where you have a table with all your hardware,
and 3 checkboxes for each component : Works, Works partially, Does not
work.

If that sounds good, Smolt could then be ported to other distros, and the
results of each could be aggregated on a single authoritative website.

I for one would love to see something like that.
