I need a computer whose ACPI implementation isn't so fucked up that it's impossible to get it working. I need them to publish a .config file for all the hardware in the laptop, and leave it at that. If a driver doesn't exist, they need to publish a GPL driver for it, and leave it at that. It -will- get merged into the kernel tree. Any specific X drivers (synaptic touchpad, gpu) would be nice, too.
If they do these 4 things, every distro will take care of supporting that machine on its own, without Dell having to spend any more time on it than that.
It's pretty fucking effortless, compared to what they must go through just fine-tuning the single window distribution that is out there.
Why can't they see this?
That's all they need
