    If the same reader workis under Windows then Linux *IS* to blame and no end
    user is going to see it any other way.

    Except a Linux loon of course.

    Ah yes, the old idiot's fallacy: "If it works under Windows, but not under
    Linux, Linux is to blame".

    Tell me, does it hurt to be so stupid?

    If Windows is so great then why do you have to compensate for your
    wonderful OS by coming here and talking out your ass?

    Go piss off and enjoy your "wonderful" OS.

    Indeed. Most people will understand the situation if you explain it to
    them:

    "You see, Microsoft has cornered the market through various means,
    and so the first thing a hardware maker will do is make sure their
    product works under Windows. Some savvy hardware makers will also
    make sure it works under Linux, or at least uses common protocols,
    or make sure to publish information that makes it easier for the
    Linux /volunteers/ to figure out how to make the hardware work.
    Others do not, and, unfortunately, xxxxx is one of them."

    "Moshe", that sacrilegious name purloiner, likes to pretend to know how
    people think. And he could be right, except for one thing -- people
    have friends who care for them and will correct their misconceptions.

    "Moshe", probably a loner, doesn't understand the concept of
    "community".

    first 16 years without any of this. I never made a political visit to
    Washington and we had no people here. It wasn't on our radar screen. We were
    just making great software.
