"Buying new hardware for Windows systems is almost impossible unless you keep "upgrading" the OS with every new version, whereas most current Linux distros support plenty of "legacy" hardware."
So you criticize Windows because of new hardware driver support...but, in the same sentence, promote Linux because it supports "legacy" hardware well (lovely use of "quotes" there)?
And no other person noticed the slick changing of misdirected topics in the sentence structure, from new hardware support to "legacy hardware"?
Are you actually going to take the position that the most popularly-used desktop computer OS in the world
doesn't have adequate new hardware driver support??
Almost all new hardware has Windows 10 support - you download the drivers, it's all web-based now. The hardware may not ship with Win10 drivers on a disc any more but that doesn't mean Win10 drivers aren't there for your new hardware; every new component I've bought has certainly, as expected, had Win10 drivers available. To do otherwise is market suicide, please don't patronize.
