“It’s not the fault of Linux if you are using the wrong hardware, buddy”
It’s Windoze’s fault that it can’t run on dead badgers.
oh thats why the text console loads garbled graphics on my mac mini (all nvidia macs have this problem). because of lack of hardware support. or is it that distro devs have no conception of quality control and standardization.

We shall never know… oh, wait.
it’s like developed by children. the fact that it cannot do on the fly fallback and has to resort to hand made grub options is insane even for 1990s. if i put xp on it, ill give a generic vga gui that’s working. thats a 10 yr old OS. which kernel 3.1 you get a broken framebuffer.
Exactly. Put it this way, the average mobile phone doesn’t experience display issues, so why does a rather mature linux desktop?
on the average phone the software is tailored for the hardware. a desktop OS is GENERAL purpose by design. it should automatically detect and configure hardware. my hope is that in the next 5-8 years these issues would be ironed out. apple for example had hot pluggable autodetection for the monitor since 10 years ago. even in windows 7 this is not the case. the OS just loads the resolution that you chose and if the monitor is different, it bombs.
