Going to sound sarcastic but for once I'm not...

It's hard to really appreciate how set and forget Linux distro's actually are, I have no internet at the moment and have to use a USB wi-fi dongle, windows rerquires I install a driver yet and so does a USB-C cable (Don't ask why a fucking cable needs a driver to transmit power but hey), I connect both up to my Linux install (Elementary OS) and boom, straight out the box they both work perfectly .-.

    Not taking into account that very old hardware works out of the box on Linux as well!

    on the other hand, my old laptop's wifi module didn't have drivers for linux, so I had to use an external one.

    >why cable need driver

    something something new usb standard requires cables and charge boxes and literally everything down the chain identify themselves. Totally not gonna be abused to FORCE you to use any specific brands or anything, no... that would be silly!
