Progress isn't a bad thing. Ranting at Fedora people because someone else's hardware isn't easy to make work on their OS is a bit silly though.

But, but, but... What's the point of an OS if it doesn't make it easy to use hardware????

To operate the CPU(s) - hardware support is optional and often in obscure places absent or wonky at best.

If your i/o devices don't work, whether your CPU works or not becomes a Heisnberg question. And the answer won't really matter.

Would you moan at redhat if you couldn't get Oracle to work on it, yet Oracle claimed linux compatibility?

Of course. There's not much excuse for screwing up interfaces that an OS is supposed to provide.

And the fact that everyone at Redhat would tell you to talk to Oracle for writing broken software wouldn't dissuade you?

I might peek at some strace output to see whether the system call arguments or results were at fault.
