Boston Linux & Unix [BLU.ORG] InstallFest4 -- 09/19/98


I am not sure but maybe "stupid" devices like "winmodems" and other
"firmware-challenged" hardware should be mentioned? Linux probably will
never support such devices (for instanse, because of the need of a
reverse engineering of the hardware drivers cause the specs are not
available etc.)

I believe that it is *fair* to mention some possible exceptions from
the Rule of Thumb quoted below:

> DOS/Windows, it "should" run under Linux (usually better!). <<<<<
