I got a free copy of Vista from Compaq for my laptop, I've tried to get Linux working on the darned thing, but there's still too much hardware thats not supported correctly, on my desktop, Ubuntu works flawlessly though.

XP too. I love so much about windows - the fact that you can't properly uninstall components like IE, MSN and media player - they boot up in the background hogging resources no matter what you do. I also love the way you can spend 100+ on an OS that doesn't belong to you. And all the other additional "gifts" uncle Bill has bestowed upon his children.

I miss Windows so much.

You might like to consider creating a duel boot on that laptop and supporting the development of supporting drivers for your hardware. after all foss runs on selfless support from the community, for all you know you may be the only person in the world with that laptop that has tried to get linux to work, or you may not be; either way how likely is it that a kernel developer will have exactly the hardware you have in order to test his code?

I have a few spare computers... all with no OS now because ubuntu liveCD won't even boot... how would I give information to a developer in that situation?
