Nice. But well: It sound like yet-another-hardware-compatibility-list to
me. Thus I'm wondering: Don't we have enough of those already? You link
to several yourself on
https://hosted.fedoraproject.org/projects/LHCP/wiki/Links
So why yet another approach? Why not co-operate with one of those? Or
wait, let's do it even better: Try to work together with all of those
those and solve the problem once and for all *properly* and in a general
way? Read that as: cooperate with at least Novell/Opensuse, Debian and
Ubuntu and maybe get OSDL ^w TLF on board (from the start of). [...]

Seems I didn't get much replies on this besides the post from Aurelien. :-(

Anyway, there is yet a new effort out there that tries to solve the "is my hardware compatible to my operating system/linux" problem. And it not even tries to be cross-distribution, it tries it to solve it this problem for all major Operating Systems:

[...]
The CompatDB.org project is an attempt to create a free (as in the freedom) standard for user submitted compatibility lists as well free compatibility lists for Windows, Linux, and Mac OS.
[...]
The following operating systems are currently supported by CompatDB.org:
[...]
Linux: [...] Fedora Core [...]
