After having R(most of)TFA it would seem that the reviewer is extremely ignorant to Linux and Open Source in general, he keeps banging-on about drivers when, strictly speaking, Linux doesn't use drivers in the way Windows folk understand them. Now I understand that he may be attempting to frame it in a way that Windows "Power Users" (I feel dirty just typing that phrase) may understand or relate to but you only have to explain most concepts once (Kernel modules for example) and most technical people will get it. I also am bothered by the fact that the only distros deemed good enough to be called "Enterprise" desktops are the ones you have to pay for at point of sale. Thus discounting Ubuntu which has a fully set-up structure of commercial support (Canonical) specifically so it can be rolled out on business desktops. Anyhoo, that's my rant done! :)
