With due respect, let me remind you that MacOS is written by the same
company that made the hardware, so all the compatibility issues come
resolved automatically. In case of MS Products, the hardware (and
accompanying driver software) is made to work with the OS due to it's
market dominance. Ever seen those "Designed for Microsoft Windows xyz"
stickers? The manufacturers can only stick them if their hardware
works in Windows. To make somethings clear:
Linux is not Windows.
Linux is not MacOS.
No one compelled you to use Linux.
Linux works for me.
Linux (eventually) worked for you.
Use it if you like it.
Don't use it if you don't like it.
But please, not another "Linux is no good..." comment.
