I hope that programmers would make drivers instead of distros etc we need hardware support and software. My epson aculaser m1200 is not supported , is it a shame ?
Why noone cares about hardware support ?
For example i have a laser printer, Epson aculaser m1200 and is partially supported (i'm using it with another's model ppd file)

If someone would invest some time for that everything would be better.
I need to print and if i can't print with ubuntu what do you think i will do?
(print via virtualbox ?? its not normal!!)

Sorry if i am a bit rude but this is the truth , linux needs hardware support and more software ! and not new distros every 4 months...

Umm this is an answers forum for people that have a technical issue and want it fixing, not for someone complaining, I am not batting away your argument however, as hardware support is, and always has been the one issue with linux. However, please go and find a discussion forum to post this on, instead of here.
