http://hardware4linux.info/ is a new web site about hardware for Linux. The site allows to browse systems and components to find the ones that work or don't work with Linux. It works in a collaborative way: users install an LSB package to collect their hardware and system configuration, upload the collected data to the site and then rate the compatibility of their hardware components on the site.
