As good hardware support as possible for ageing hardware

Registered by sudodus on 2013-08-20

The driver support of 12.04 LTS should be carried over to 14.04 LTS.
Of course I want support for new hardware too.

Whiteboard

[amjjawad] As far as I know, that will be included on the Kernel and definitely, the more drivers, the better support.

[vanyok] I miss the support for my damn Broadcom 4312 wifi, as the integrated is not working. Each time I have to install manually firmware-linux-nonfree... I agree with amjjawad here.

[gilir] Hardware support are not done at Lubuntu component level. Go to kernel + X people instead.
