Well, the great Linux experiment is over. I bought a $250 PIII laptop without an operating system, and installed Linux. I spent three weeks screwing around with ndiswrapper, and I spent days browsing the Ubuntu forums, and I could never get wireless to work. And what, after all, is the point of a laptop without wireless? Nothing!

So I purchased an OEM version of Windows from VioSoftware. I popped the disk into the CD-Rom drive, and twenty mnutes later, I'm surfing the Internet.

I still have Linux on my old Compaq computer. I have a USB Wireless adapter hooked up to it, but wireless don't work on it either. Until Linux natively supports wireless cards, I think I'll stick to Windows.
