That a lot of good full time Linux users have Hall Monitor syndrome.

"That it is illegal. That it is spelled wrong. That it violates. No, you'll shoot your eye out.
That does not meet the standards. Mine is best. F the rest. "

It is almost like when the bully took ones lunch money in grade school.
It turned them into a raving control freak advancing into adult hood.

I mod at other Linux forums. I mod at Windows/Mac forums also....

Suggestions

This is my take on new Linux users migrating from Windows for what ever reasons. Usually any more when I see the word of suggestion in a thread title. I avoid it like the plague now.

Broadcom Wireless

Posted 08-04-2013 at 02:45 PM by rokytnji

First, this really isn't an Ubuntu or a Debian or a Mint issue. The problem likely lies with Broadcom and their lack of availability of firmware information for their wireless hardware. Broadcom does make a "generic" wireless driver for Linux, but it allegedly doesn't work with everything. Therefore, the Ubuntu development team have had to use fwcutter to pull the firmware information from a Windows driver to build one that works for Linux.
