Ok, i know this can be a dumb suggestion, but wouldn't it be nice to create an OS forum or something?
I mean, i know this is a Hardware forum, but many questions are related to driver/OS compatibility so it's half hardware and half software problem.

We can sure use the other forums (winplanet, linuxplanet) for these also, but the more help you can get, the more easy it'll be to find a reasonable answer. Besides, there are many people who seem to have never seen the links on the top of the page... including me, until I started writing this
