One more quick post. Last week I purchased an inexpensive (shall I say cheap) laptop from WalMart. It is a Toshiba A215-S5808. I booted once in Vista to burn a cd and them immediately installed Ubuntu 7.10. Almost all my hardware was recognized, except the wireless and sound. This post was very helpful in resolving those issues. It’s only been a week, but I keep asking myself, “Why did I code so long in Windows”.
