"Linux. The OS that can run on just about anything you can manage to throw together, from the oldest of parts, to usually, the newest. This time we'll be taking a look at what hardware Linux doesn't happen to like and is finicky with."

"Linux is a very diverse and extensive operating system. You can run it on nearly any x86 machine you can manage to cobble together, and even on some Macintosh's (although I will not touch upon anything relating to Macs). If you just randomly throw parts into a case, the chances are you'll probably have a bootable machine in Linux. Although that isn't always the case, as some hardware and Linux just do not get along. This week I'll be taking a look at what Linux happens to not like, varying from video, to sound, to network adapters, to other miscellaneous things."
