More than the Hardware link on the front page of the wiki?

I don't think it's fair since some hardware works well for some people
and other works better for others. I think it's better to stay
objective and list all hardware and facts about the hardware. Like
what exists on the wiki.
The only suggestion I would make is to add a Subcategory of
Recommended Cards (at the same level as the Analog, HDTV and MPEG
capture card subcategories) that would simply list all cards that are
known to be fully supported.
Again, I feel like the wiki should be the place to send people when
they are looking for hardware and it's up to all of us to add out
known good working hardware to it and to be objective about how well
it works for you.
