I think there are too many spelling mistakes in your petition, and the demands you make are unjustified.

It is your decision to buy some hardware (e.g. videocard) based on the Linux support the manufacturer has. It is not possible to force manufacturers to support Linux when they don't want to.

Furthermore, I think it is unreasonable to demand drivers and/or driver source code. You might have a point when asking for hardware information that would allow you to write a driver yourself.

It's useless a petition if some hardware don't work properly
