That's 100% the HW manufacturers fault. You can't blame the ones who
build car transmissions for the high gas prices.
It's not a matter of declaring fault. It's just a sad conclusion that Linux
can not hope to compete with MS for the Desktop unless something
changes and it won't be the manufacturers who are concened with
competition. I worked in the Mini-Computer industry for too many years
and I know how Hardware manufacturers think.
