Anyone know where I can find a list of hardware that is guaranteed to work with Linux?

Well most of the hardware DOES work with linux, all you need is the drivers, but usually you won't need any.

Great lists. Some people say that it's hard to make hardware work properly in Linux, some say it's easy, I guess that you don't know unless you try.

I think you should check the distro itself. Different distros tend to have more or less adjusted software.

I heard Ubuntu was the most complex and complete.

OpenSUSE is great as well. I am using version 11.0 now and I have no problems at all.

Oh, ** yeah:) The GUI is a killer:) I think it's cooler than Vista, but this is just my opinion, though:)

The GUI/Desktop Environment is the last thing I care about when I choose a distribution. It's always possible to change the GUI/DE if you don't like the default one. I will rather look at the functionality of the distribution.

Thats the way I look at it too. I almost always tinker with the GUI. (usually end up breaking it in the process, and then fixing it) but the GUI is easily changeable on most distributions, which is one reason why I prefer linux over windoze ... doh. So yeah.

I am all about graphics so the GUI/Desktop is the first thing I look for. :)

IMO the GUI is not easy to change. You have either Gnome or KDE but what else?
