drivers to match instead of waiting for an OS provider that might be
dealing with thousands of other devices to catch up?

I would agree with you IF those same hardware providers actually DID
get off their asses and write the drivers. But they are not.

You mean they aren't writing them for Linux... But they do write them for an OS that provides a stable interface definition and allows distribution of the driver along with the OS. Coincidence?
