I was recently in a hotel room with my wife and her brother and sister. We both have the exact same acer computer – the Acer Aspire 3680-2022. I have Ubuntu on mine and he has Windows Vista. We bought them both at the same time. So this is IDENTICAL equipment. And in the hotel room he could not get a wireless signal while I was able to get a nice sustained signal the entire time. It’s not what Microsoft wants to hear, but in this case Ubuntu was BETTER on wireless than Windows!! That’s right – Linux IS ready for the desktop NOW! Not next year – now!
