Conan: Crom, I have never prayed to you before. I have no tongue for it. No one, not even you, will remember if we were good men or bad. Why we fought, or why we died. All that matters is that two stood against many. That's what's important! Valor pleases you, Crom... so grant me one request. Grant me revenge! And if you do not listen, then to HELL with you!

Erm, no? When I was having wireless issues on a new (to me) Thinkpad, I couldn't even get online to search for the problem. Installing a completely different distro ended up fixing those wireless issues. The Windows installation Linux replaced had no such issues. In fact, I can't think of a time when I *had* wireless issues with Windows, but I can recount many, many issues with wireless under Linux, from having to compile the kernel with things like PCMCIA support to support my old Orinoco Gold PCMCIA cards, etc etc etc. You're probably right: Had I had these same issues under Windows or MacOS, I'd be equally as lost, if not moreso. However, in 15 years of computing, that particular issue has not come up under Windows (although there have been many, many others). Hell, on some of my hardware, I can't even get Linux to install anymore (something about APIC (not APCI), etc) whereas the Windows XP install it came with is perfectly fine. And so on.

I love Linux, use it all the time, but when it's fucked it's good and fucked and my solution these days is just to keep all my data on a different mount just in case I just have to reinstall vs actually troubleshoot an issue.
