http://hardware4linux.info

http://hardware4linux.info/ is a new community web site about hardware for Linux. The site allows to browse systems and components to find the ones that work or don't work with Linux. It works in a collaborative way: users install an LSB package to collect their hardware and system configuration, upload the collected data to the site and then rate the compatibility of their hardware components on the site.

Report your systems to help map the actual hardware support under Linux!

Here is the current statistics about the reported distributions:

* Ubuntu 7.04 : 54 systems
* Mandriva Linux 2007.1 : 33 systems
* Debian lenny/sid : 29 systems

I smell a spammer scumbag. In

I smell a spammer scumbag.

In order to upload results, you have to provide an EMail addy (to register with their site). So he'll have an archive matching hardware types with EMail addys.

In other words, EMail addresses linked to quality of gear - GOLD for spammers.

This sumbich does NOT NEED EMAIL ADDRESSES to do what he's trying to do.

JimMarch, I have been involved

JimMarch,

I have been involved in open source for more than 10 years now and I think I deserve a little bit of trust. I request email to be able to inform users of new features and to discuss some issues with them. I do this site on my free time and I don't plan to let anyone access emails.
