wouldn't know, haven't used it in years.  i never had an hardware support issues
but then i don't own every freaky piece of hardware known to man.  plus, i
always speced out machines according to what FreeBSD supported.  if you're
gonna do something, do it right. :)

for the many years that i did run FreeBSD it totally stomped, and it NEVER
gave me any trouble.  it's a top-nothc x86 OS.
