I've been running linux for over 6 years and never had to install a 
single driver by hand. With the latest distros (debian/ubuntu) all I had 
to do was to 1) place the cd in the cdrom drive 2) boot and answer a few 
questions (which country I'm in etc) 3) install whatever software I want 
to use and that's it.

Then again I might not be your average computer user + I carefully avoid 
linux hostile hardware :-)

Bottom line: I can in no way recognize the picture you paint of linux 
driver problems, and hence fail to follow your arguments on why 
manufacturers avoid linux. My .02 would simply be that they don't (and 
they might be right at the moment) see enough money in supporting linux.

peace, love & harmony
