The second development that is contributing to the growth of Linux is its hardware
detection and support. All major distributions of Linux for the PC have excellent
hardware detection. Through the use of advanced hardware detection and some
support for plug-and-play devices, Linux can detect and load the correct device
drivers for various types of hardware. This enables the user to ignore the previous
task of manually configuring the PC for the hardware that it contains. The ability to
detect most new hardware and automatically load proper drivers has eased the dif-
ficulty of Linux installation on most PCs.
