Good luck. Linux always has issues with me. For some stupid reason, Ubuntu just can’t find my local network and/or refuses to connect to my wi-fi.

If it does, then there will be some other problem, for instance both openSUSE and Ubuntu can’t recognise my video card and none of the drivers work (Does AMD even support proper Linux drivers for Radeon cards?)

Meanwhile Windows 7 just did it without bitching or complaining. I’ve since erased all other systems and gave Win7 both of my hard drives

The Linuxfags will give me shit for not having the nerd-fu to set up a linux distro to working order but frankly it’s just not worth it
