You got Win95 from AOL? I thought not. In fact, you probably got Win95 
from the manufacturer of your PC. The reason it doesn't have much 
trouble handling the hardware is that the manufacturer solved those 
problems for you. If you could get Linux from a manufacturer (and you 
can from a few small folks), you would not have hardware detection 
problems either.
