What did you specifically have a hard time getting to work? Were there drivers available? What distro did you use? Did you try generic drivers?

Linux is powerful, but the learning curve is steep.
It was ubuntu, what ever version was available when win7 was in late beta stages. And no drivers were not available.

camera tethering is software issue, not driver
scanner having dpi limited to 200, was with generic driver, since normal driver wasn't available then (not sure about now)
and the canopus (green valley) hd capture card, no driver, no generic, nothing worked.

for linux to "take over" a lot more work is required, progress is slow
Windows 8 the next big failure, right after Windows ME
