Hi all,

Does this latest version of Fedora supports DisplayLink? (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DisplayLink)

Linux have been lacking support for this over the years, staying behind Windows and OSx! When does the Linux community will start to take this seriously into consideration?

DisplayLink does not release their driver as open sources because off that there is a lack of support on Linux they provide a driver for Ubuntu, but they do not support other distros they mention their Ubuntu package has components that can be used on other distros they are not open sources http://support.displaylink.com/knowle... .

So it is not Linux community fault, community works fine when propietary companies release their code.
