yes, but there are people that do use them.
and i don't know who changed the subject header to off-topic, but
i can't agree. trying to encourage driver support for either the
linux kernel or linux applications seems like an integral part of
the irish linux users group. it seems even more on topic then
the development topics i keep bringing up. in order for people
to use linux (or any os) they must be able to access various bits
of data - word docs, videos, etc. this is a case where linux users
can team up and let vendors know that we want to be supported, that
we're a "market." (gag)
if there are other linux users here who are having difficulties
because of proprietary formats or devices i hope they'll post
their problems here and detail who we can contact. i for one will
gladly pester them to provide support (or better yet specs to
free s/w developers).
