Absolutely. Serial ports that don’t work are not terribly helpful.

You’d be amazed how often I do see people asking effectively “how do I program a raspberrianpie? I can’t find Arduino libraries for it”. Of course they tend to be the same sort of people that try to tell me that linux can only run on x86 machines, that Apple stole linux and tried to make it closed source but Microsoft bravely fought them off, that Harley’s are motorcycles, and that C++ was predicted by {religious tract of their choice}, etc.

Ooh, look; my random sigline chooser found an amazingly apropos sigline to describe such people!
