I hope all of you out there can take a moment and request linux support from a
vendor you know doesn't support them currently. I have written Cox a letter
encouraging them to begin supporting Linux like my DSL provider does.

I have been writing one letter every week for the past two years. I
have a list of companies that do not aknowledge that Linux exists. If
every Linux user were to write to a software or hardware developer,
once a week, and request Linux support then we would see the market
turn around in no time. Here's a starting point:
