I reckon one of the main problems with Linux is that people expect it to run flawlessly on their "scrapheap challenge" style PC's made out of cheap x86 hardware. One of it's main strengths (the freedom to choose your hardware) is also it's downfall.

I'd guess that OS's like MacOSX, Solaris and even AmigaOS wouldn't be half as fast and reliable if they weren't designed to run on such a limited selection of hardware and couldn't be integrated into the machine so tightly.
