Our you sure there aren't Intel devolopers who do this on the lkml?
I do known however that the nvidia and amd drivers are being, while
not opened are being optimized for Linux and are now more stable
and faster in most benchmarks by like 20% only after four months
of development  on a gtx 780. I would like to see the same work
coming into the Intel drivers. Overall in terms of hardware support
we are way better then Windows expect for a few areas ,which
I will list below.
1. Nvidia Graphics can be faster then Windows( improving fast,
probably will happen in next few months)
    Removed no overclocking support
2. Amd Graphics(same as above )
    Removed no overclocking support
3.Intel Graphics(needs lots of work)
4. Printers and Scanners ( need more support from vendors)
5. Laptops( Mostly battery is shorter on a few laptops then in
Windows) and maybe hdmi and touchscreen  support?
   Otherwise we are good here and have removed are issues with  Nvidia
optimus not be supported
6. Gaming Mice and Keyboards

Cheers Nick
