Re: UI changes

Agreed. All my hardware works well under Linux with occasional hiccups with Bluetooth. (which also is a bit flaky under Windows) My (now gratefully long gone) HP printer would never work in duplex in Windows 7, but worked flawlessly under Linux. Maybe MS could someday explain the mystery of why Windows has to search the online driver database for 5 minutes or more sometimes just to install a no-frills wired USB mouse (which sometimes fails), while the same mouse just works instantly when I plug it into a Linux box.

For those that mentioned Canon, my Canon color laser works great on both Win and Linux. The Linux driver was available on Canon's site and was very easy to install, though I'd agree you may have a struggle with older models.
