Re: Just Wow! Say it ain't so!
You are just trolling: I do not believe anyone who reads the comments section here still believes you have to type "cryptic commands" to get common hardware to work. Most hardware "just works" with Linux and plenty of people who use Linux here have said it.
Especially weird when replying to a thread in which the GP was talking about how difficult it is to get hardware working with Windows if you need to reinstall.
If all you care about is getting it working, you are better off with Linux.
