Really? What problems? I've run into very few in recent memory, and none of
it was critical hardware. The only things I can think of were a card reader
and a fingerprint reader. Even most wireless cards are supported any more.
I haven't found anything yet that couldn't be worked around. I'm not saying
it "never" happens anymore, but "almost always" seems to be overstating
things quite a bit.
