One think which is really painful on Linux is the support for external hardware like scanners, printers and others USB devices.
I wish there is some kind of central repository, a webpage which collects all devices supported on Linux. Each entry could have information regarding the exact hardware specification, distro and kernel version, software used to handle it and all the useful information. Community ratings and comments on each entry would be very useful and of course an easy search mechanism via search feature or manual search by categories would be extremely beneficial for Linux users.
Until then I have question regarding Blu-ray USB burners.
I would like to buy one to backup my data on an multi layer disc. But I couldn’t find much information which model is supported and works under Linux and what software works best for this purpose.
Can you recommend a Blu-ray USB burner that works under Linux and a software which is capable to burn multi-layer discs ?
