Definitely hardware support. Originally I was frustrated with the "complexity" of it. I determined this based on:
1.) The filesystem hierarchy that is so incredibly diverse per distribution.
2.) The annoying task of maintaining software.
You could probably relate these problems to a general lack of Linux standards, and as contradictory as it sounds: I'm a big fan of distro-specific standards. I hope Linux doesn't ever adobt global standards.

However, even with these problems, Termina pointed out to me how pathetic the hardware support really was.
: Wireless drivers just NOW become native? Well christ, about time.
: Multimedia devices? My god. If I had to point out one plaguing issue on most Linux support forums... And my video card still has yet to receive any video acceleration.
: SCSI devices? hah!

But, I'm with Corey. Using Linux on a laptop is a sincere replacement for Hell. These hardware issues seem to be extremely important, in my opinion. Games, usablity, etc. are all things that can wait until the necessities of working hardware can be addressed. I think the computer should work before a true attempt at usability can be attempted.
