I'd stick with Windows. I bet you cannot learn a new spoken language like japanese in 5 minutes either.
Me. I have a work ethic. Something that is needed to learn Linux. Just like if I needed to learn Japanese.

We have always been a geek, hobbyist, underdog, type of operating system to the world and folks like you.
But this GED ejaculated scooter tramp understands Linux just fine.

mintwifi is a handy tool to query your home network setup. You type mintwifi in a terminal and view the info, what you do with it is up to you. If you expected it to magically set up your wifi you will be dissapointed. If you want that kind of thing pay your money (wedding fee) and live with that company.
