For the sake of argument let’s take the position of a new Linux user (and pretend I am an experienced one.)
That person acquires a Dell, HP, ASUS or other brand computer.
Now with Windows OS, all manufacturers supply firmware and driver update sources and software.
Can (or should) a Linux user abandon all pursuit of firmware and driver updates? I imagine many drivers ARE in the Linux kernel.
What advice is there that newer Linux users might benefit from?
