I have been using windows all my life and now would like to try out linux, and move into using more open source software…
However, I have read around that it is very hard to get some of the hardware working on linux because many manufacturers dont support linux by not releasing drivers for it.
So, before actually installing linux on my cheap laptop (toshiba satellite pro c660, intel i3 m380, 4bg ram) I would like to somehow check my hardware compatibility with linux. Does anyone know any websites where I could do it?
I just want to make sure that I will be able to get stuff like wifi and microphone (I use skype alot) working.
