  1. Dimdows XP remains a stumbling block <http://lwn.net/Articles/377895/>.
    While it has been officially disowned by its creator, the Linux folks still
    care about it.

    XP is an older OS so can't be expected to be fully compatible but there
    seems to be workarounds if you need them, the one in my PC works OK.
    Presumably if you are going to be even handed you should also be dragging
    out OS from the 80s/90s etc and complaining they don't support gigabyte
    drive.
    This

    would seem to indicate even some current OS are not ready though.
