When the hardware is probed, general information (identity, version, etc.) is
sent to your computer, but it does not guarantee that drivers are included.
As Malke has given you some excellent advice already, I will only add that
once you buy Linux-friendly (as opposed to Windows-oriented or
Linux-hostile) hardware, then you're good to go, for good. Just make sure
that the next computer you buy (somewhere along the line) is either shown to
be 'Linux ready' or has Linux preinstalled. Linux affinity will save you a
lot of hassle. I speak from experience here...

The cost we pay for a long-term improvement is a short-term and relatively
inexpensive compromise. And it's typical in many transitions where being
overly stubborn can be fruitful, but very arduous.

With kind regards,
