The thing with average is, you can't look on the tables and say 50 miles is enough for most.
No one in this thread has yet. I'm not worried about people mis-interpreting my post, this is slashdot, right?
I'd had Linux on it. I put the disc in, loaded it up. Everything worked, and worked well. Then I loaded Vista on it. It took me a few hours to find the network drivers (because the model wasn't listed on the manufacturer's website (Lenovo)), and then a few days to find the SM Bus drivers. I still haven't found the audio drivers for it. I did install the nVidia drivers on it, that took three reboots to get them going. The updates took me 9 hours to download (for some reason, under Vista, the download speed is almost a quarter of what it is under Linux) and install. This is what you'd have me leave Linux for? I thought Windows "just worked," and ran everything!
Which version of Linux (release date / year)? If it is a more recent build than from 2007, comparing it to Windows Vista (which was released in January 2007) is hardly fair... I'm not surprised 8.5 YEARS of updates took a while to download.
Although some current WiFi systems have similar bandwidth, it has to be divided by the number of devices, so each user might be receiving just 5 to 10 megabits per second...
Current 80MHz 4x4 WiFi can reach speeds over 1Gbps... Even a 1x1 station can see about 350Mbps of throughput in a clean channel. This comparison is nonsense.
Next generation WiFi having MU-MIMO support also won't split the bandwidth as described (I think this is a fair comparison since this is also a technology is not yet widely adopted).
Bob reports that the bug-tracking system abandoned by OpenSSL has actually been very useful to the OpenBSD developers
If LibreSSL is managed anything like the OpenBSD project itself, it won't have a public bug tracking system, which I find quite annoying... Don't get me wrong, I like OpenBSD and have used it since 2.9, I just don't understand why they don't have a publicly available bug tracking system.
