I haven't made my switch to Linux Mint yet (see my previous threads here about that) as I'm getting all my ducks in a row before I pull the trigger.
One problem I had when playing with the LiveCD was that it didn't recognise the WiFi adaptor that I use in my old desktop machine, which is a Netgear something-or-other that's about 6 years old. I've read that Linux generally has a bad time with Broadcom chipsets, which I believe is what's inside my adaptor.
Rather than wrestle with trying to get my old adaptor working I'd prefer to buy a new one that will just work when I plug it in. So are there any manufacturers that offer good Linux support that I should be looking at? Or do I have to check out each model to see if other people report it working ok? Or can I assume that everything that's currently available will work ok?
