I am your average, home-grown computer user: lots of internet use, medium office use and a little gaming, photo and video editing etc. I am willing to tweak a little bit and even try to make use of that terminal thing (although annoying as hell). So here's my beef.... I just spend hours on trying to find an intel 3945 wireless networking driver that would work with the ndiswrapper (inf file) but intel has a different file extension available as a download. The new "auti-ndiswrapper" does not support intel 3945. Hence my wireless still does not work properly. In the 5 minutes that I can use it before it crashes I tried to install the adobe flash player plugin both via adobe website and via synaptic package manager, I even tried to "force" the flashplugin-nonfree via the package manager...still does not work. Ahh, I almost forgot that about half of the time elyssa freezes upon start-up. I don't know how you guys do it, I don't have the time or the motivation to figure these things out, I just want my OS to work and as much as I want to give MS Vista the boot I think I have to go back to it as it worked better ...well maybe not better but easier than Linux. So, I just needed to get that of my chest as I should have studied this morning but spent hours on doing this stuff.
