That's still a relatively long time, in this industry.

Maybe it's because I tend to run Linux in VMs, and various distributions nowadays tend to know Hyper-V's virtualized hardware really well and is well supported.

That being said, I also have Linux running directly on a few laptops and the hardware support is generally working out better than Windows...for example, Windows typically needs additional drivers, whereas things on Linux tend to work out of the box. But I would still agree that if something isn't recognized from the get-go, then I will generally have a harder time getting it to work on Linux than on Windows...but that's just because I'm much more familiar with Windows than Linux, if I want to be fair.
