Wow. Not even all BSD distros work with all hardware.

I was fascinated by this report posted at distrowatch where someone compared a bunch of live CD's for BSD. BSD is another free operating system and is not the same thing as linux. The fascinating thing to me is that only one out of four tested distros worked on all four boxes the author tested.
"My overall impression was that BSD live CDs are not on par (yet) with their GNU/Linux cousins, but that they are catching up fast. "
My experience with linux distros this weekend (see yesterday's post) is that the linux distros aren't as universally good at hardware detection.
