Yep. I've got a Toshiba Satellite P35 that was on the road with me for
about a year. 802.11g wireless and internal Atheros (I think some on
this list said they sucked?) and it did OK. But I had no prior
experience with that stuff, so I can't compare.

Having been an *almost* exclusive *IX* user since mid-seventies, I saw
all the MS as "Same crap new $100 box". Somewhat justified by the fact
that I still see the same blue screens, erratic reliability and some MS-
caused things.

Maybe UofW "nook" project will help some of the bombs caused by the
65,000+ plus drivers available.

Linux is becoming subject to the same thing because of it's development
model and experience level and lack of ... various attributes. Nook also
works (in fact was developed using?) with Linux.
