Tri Huynh is not the only MCSE on this Linux LUG mailing list-others
on the list's distribution make their living as MCSEs.
And, if you remember his original post, it was wireless card's
integration into Linux that was his issue-specifically availability of
device drivers; but it could be pointed out that Vista has similar
issues, too-resulting in MS committing to re-installation of XP on new
boxes, (after the box manufactures revoked/rebelled installation of
Vista.) Vista installations have much the same issues as Tri.
