One of the things that many people buying new computer or other hardware consider is the hardware compatibility with GNU/Linux. Actually many people do not even think about that. They just go to the shop, buy something that they liked and after that go home and install some distribution. And logically, after some hours of effort they start complaining around the forums how GNU/Linux is stupid operating system and how they can not run their computer/hardware on it. So, what mistake that user make all the time? They basically do not check if their hardware is supported in GNU/Linux.
It would be very beautiful and comfortable if there were some GNU/Linux distribution that keep track of used hardware of the users or just could provide information how the particular hardware would perform.
I know such a distribution - Fedora.
