Parent article: Linux in a binary world... a doomsday scenario
Thanks for your comments - both you and the poster above. It is true that if I always only buy specific hardware then it will usually work on Linux. (For some values of "work". It will very often not have a reasonable GUI.) But for example, why should I spend money on an external modem? Why can't I use the "crappy winmodem" on my laptop? You're telling me about freedom but I don't see any advantages, just costs.
