Ouch, presumably that is aimed at me for since I made the first
reference to "Driver Hell" in an email I sent this morning (UK time),
however I have had to keep you waiting while I went to work :-)

However so I do not intend to document instances of problems with
Windows drivers on this list.  I have seen them (as well as problems
with drivers on GNU/Linux), and a quick Google reveals one or two.

I suspect that are not that far apart on our thoughts where this relates
to Fedora - I certainly do not think Fedora should be blamed if hardware
is no longer compatible with a new release, or if software provided by a
third party such as RPMFusion stops working. I also feel that if the use
of closed propriety drivers are that critical to someones computer use
then they should be usimg a more stable distro than Fedora.
