One part of your statement I agree with and that is to get good
hardware, it can make all the difference sometimes. PC hardware is
still some of the oldest and worse designed stuff around. Everybody
has their own standards, so few follow any rules in building things.
The no SIS chipsets though, you are way off base! Apparently you have
had a bad incident with them some time ago and decided to dislike SiS,
but you are wrong not to recommend them now. I have not ever had such
good hardware with VIA or Intel as the SiS chipset boards I'm using &
recommending now. They have been far & above better operating setups
than any Intel or VIA I've installed Linux on, with fewer bugs too.
I've had really good luck out of the AMD chipsets also and Linux.
