Sure we can.  But new hardware sometimes comes out with unexpected 
gotchyas, and the Kernel developers have to catch up and fix the 
problems *after* the hardware is available to a dev.... and then you 
have to wait for the distros to pick up the patches..... in short, when 
buying bleeding edge hardware, you have to either verify that it works 
with linux or risk getting cut.
