I have always found the limitation on the usability of devices to be one
of the odorous problems with all too many non-windows operating systems.
It is the antithesis of the often stated Windows "locked in" business
plan. I have labeled it the "locked out" game plan.

In my opinion, the user should make a detailed list of what their goals
and budget are, then move forward with securing the needed items sans
any back door hacks, etcetera. I am a firm believer in the 'KISS'
principal. That, plus the fact that I never let an OS dictate to me
what peripheral devices I can use. It is my firm belief that by
utilizing inferior or less robust peripheral devices or software, it is
enabling developers or software designers not to create more robust
devices with the proper drivers or write more powerful and
useful programing.
