At the risk of being rude to Robert, this is an example of how FUD spreads.
There is an example quoted on some support forum or other, or on a
blog, along the lines of "Linux does not support Device XYZ" or "Linux
cannot do ABC"
Months or years later, when there IS support for XYZ and ABC in the
Linux kernel the information surfaces again.

Sorry Robert - really and honestly not a personal attack on you, but I
have seen how FUD regarding Linux propagates. And remember Linux does
not have a huge marketing budget behind it. Yes I DO know that Redhat
is a billion dollar company these days, but we don't see the blitz of
television and press advertisign for a new Redhat version etc. etc.
etc.   s/Redhat/Ubuntu/ to your liking.
