Geez.  If a computer manufacturer isn't able to get enough details from
the chipset manufacturer to create a working driver, for their own
product, to go with any of several well supported distributions, then
what hope has anybody else?!

I see no excuse for a manufacturer releasing a computer that doesn't
work, or work well.  (Not that's stopped HP from releasing incredibly
crappy Pavillion computers, in the past.  But it's inexcusable.)
