Still, it's nice to see that problem being shared with drivers.
For a good five seconds, I was wondering how you were certain this was a driver issue.

Maybe I should have used the joke icon, I mean come on, the suggestion is obviously terrible.
And yes, I have fired a gun - an L85 Rifle at a target range on an RAF base. My aim was indeed garbage but I was thinking about going to uni to sign up as an engineer so that wasn't my biggest concern.
I think it's a Unicomp Model M - https://www.pckeyboard.com/page/product/UB40P46
The modifier keys are different, but essentially these guys bought the tooling and rights to make Model Ms when Lexmark stopped making them.
Have no experience on an original Model M, but an happy with my newish one.
I have usually had the luxury of working with people intelligent enough to know that they muck around in the spreadsheet at their own peril. Upon finishing a masterpiece, I always find that sitting down and talking them through the most important parts helps - either they understand what's going on and can take the sheet and run with it or they understand that they don't get it and leave it alone.
For analysing a chunk of data (and as long as it fits in Excel), you can get something out of Excel faster. Then you can display it faster.
If the data doesn't fit in Excel or is already in a Database, then R or Python may well be better.
Also, real Excel wizards use formulae for everything. Resorting to VBA is an act of surrender.
It's not entirely stupid - instead of thinking of the ad as an advert, think of it as a dynamic link on the homepage to what is reasonably likely to be the most important part of the site for a specific user. Contrary to what you might think, most display campaigns and display providers are chosen due to the strength of their results for the money spent so a place with good targeting is likely to get chosen over a place with weak targeting. This leads to all the display companies trying to make their targeting as swish as possible.
Using that in the same way as a paid for site search function isn't a bad idea...
Honestly the thing that bugged me the most was the lack of Daemons for anybody that wasn't important to the story. Oxford University should have looked like a menagerie in the corridors [more than usual, at least - Gen. Melchett] but just wasn't...
Hence the goal to make launches as cheap, reliable and mundane as possible - widening the net for people who want to put satellites in orbit to improve profits. Also the purpose of starlink (I think that's that it's called) for the satellite internet business.
Beyond that, if Musk can get his hands on either lunar or asteroid mining or becomes the defacto route to space for space mining hardware, then he has a license to print money, especially if he's able to pull off manned outposts on/orbiting the moon - Oxygen seems to be in ready supply within the regolith if you can extract it so there are possibilities for LOX refuelling at a minimum to reduce the mass getting lifted from Earth's gravity well and therefore potential for improving payload capacity on upper stages.
Your use case may work just fine on Linux, but please don't try and pretend that in gaming that Linux developer support doesn't comfortably fit into a rounding error.
It's probable that with enough effort, all games will run on a Linux box, but there is no advantage over Windows where the games were designed to run in the first place.
It's also worth pointing out that Windows will just run a 32 bit app in a 64 bit OS - no additional actions are required by the user (or knowledge to find the correct name of the library).
I am not telling you to use Windows because it's better than Linux. What I would like you to do is show some fucking sanity and accept that Linux is not necessarily better than Windows for other people's workloads.
To the above commenters asking why amazon.amazon etc is worth so much, please consider the effect of having any Tom, Dick or Harry able to create a domain that looks like offers.amazon/stuff or returns.amazon/stuff would have.
having an entire TLD of your company's name out in the wild would be damn near the worst case scenario for dealing with domain squatters, especially when your company is bigger than a lot of countries and will attract scammers like a candle to a moth (calls from "Microsoft" about your computer, anyone?)
changing www.amazon.co.uk to uk.amazon probably isn't going to happen, but not grabbing the TLD could go very badly for the company.
