Once upon a time, you could put a floppy disk with the Linux kernel on it into a PC and it would boot.

Nowadays, you have to use a separate program (LILO, GRUB, U-Boot, Blob, LART, RedBoot, etc., etc.) to load Linux, set up some parameters, and then start it running.

When you have new hardware, this sucks. You have to port not one but two programs that have intimate knowledge of the hardware. And you generally have to port USB stacks, Network drivers, etc.
