    Michael seems to hate the irrelevant and dying VIA company for not sharing source code for their irrelevant and dying product(s).

    Default Worst Choice Award

    I consider VIA (along with SiS) to be worst choice.

    I would never buy anything from VIA or SiS because their stuff sucks!
    I wouldn't buy from Belkin or Trust either.

    VIA is ok if you want an entire system made completely by 1 company - they are cheap. But otherwise there are better choices for a better price. I too hate Belkin, at least their routers. Some of their other things are ok.

    Then you going to use that system on Linux?
    And the graphics wont work or will barely work. Buggy and slow as hell.

    My dad bought a Belkin router. I told dude you bought network gear from a company that sells iPod socks. What an idiot. The router sucked.

    I don't get the hate, they made a product that extends the usb3 cable range from 3m to 100m. Their cable has really no bearing on their lack of FOSS support.

    Good for them.
    It might be a good cable, but I still don't like them because all their other products suck.

    I had a motherboard with their Via KT133 chipset and it BSOD a lot.

    Had a laptop with the VIA Chrome graphics, and it got a flickering rectangle on the mouse pointer, so couldn't use it Linux.
