Sony VAIO E-Series Hardware Support


Hello there, i am trying to get more into Linux by trying distributions which are a bit of a challenge for the normal end-user such as Slackware, Debian and Gentoo but i am having a lot of trouble due to hardware support.

I was wondering are there any good specialised hardware support websites for certain distros?

I find for example Ubuntu is very good with hardware support, all i had to do was update ALSA, and i had a fully running system.

Maybe i should first understand how drivers work in Linux operating systems as opposed to Windows systems.

Anyone know any good learning resources for hardware support on Linux systems?

Thanks in advance.

I personally wish I had a phone number that I could dial each time I needed help with a piece of software (or hardware) I just bought. I'm not speaking of only web design software. There are thousands of software programs out there from gaming all the way to complicated business applications. Who would pay for consulting on how to effectively use software? Alot of people who do not like to waste their time. After all time is money to many people!
