Now.. it is up to anyone who disagrees with Mr. Jackson's informed

information provided in the inf file is enough to fix the issues that
Mr. Jackson has stated can't be resolved with information from the inf
file. Stop arguing that the inf should have the information
necessary.. .and start showing that they do.

Isn't the fact that windows works with them a pretty good demonstration?

I FORBID arguments for arguments sake.  If you want to argue with me
about that, i suggest we open up a fedora-arguments-list.

OK, where do we sign up?

Adam Jackson has previously done just that... he wrote quite
succinctly that information in inf files is not enough to solve the
underlying problems.

Is he suggesting that windows uses magic? I thought he meant instead that X doesn't use the information sensibly.
