This project has been axed in its early stages as a fair amount of the Fedora community decided that with todays development pace and the vast amount and range of hardware available, an official HCL would be a waste of resources. Other ideas were thrown about including an 'Hardware Incompatiblity List' but these have been dismissed also.

Due to the nature of open source, Doncho and I are free to continue this project if we wish, and Doncho may continue to do so, but I no longer feel motivated to continue without the Fedora Documentation Project and the majority of the Fedora community behind me.

The Hardware Compatiblity List as last updated in Early January 2005 stands below. Feel free to resurrect and maintain it if you feel compelled to do so. This is the land of the free.

For those looking for a Hardware Compatibility List, you may find the following resources helpful - however as some of them are related to other distributions they should be used as a guide only.

[ Thank you to all those who initally supported the idea, and of course as normal I'll be lingering on the mailing list somewhere. Feel free to drop me a line at [[MailTo(plasticmonkey AT SPAMFREE gmail DOT COM com)]
