I understand the frustration, but more specifics about the problems you're having might let somebody help you.

Not me personally, I'm just an average user ;) ; it was just luck that my wireless worked from the start with Xubuntu 7.10. Still, there are a lot of helpful, knowledgeable, people here if you care to ask questions rather than just venting. :)

Another "not ready for the desktop" thread?

Well, I've moved this to recurring discussions.

If people want to offer help to judahbenel, the thread you're viewing is not the place to do it. Offer help in judahbenel's support thread (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=613119).

Using the wrong distribution can be rather stressful.

If a Linux distro gives you grey hair, then you have to shop around and try a few others before you give up. The difference between distros lies in the install and configuration wizards. Chances are that one of the others (Mandriva, Fedora, Suse, Mepis...) will install and run perfectly on your hardware.

Using the wrong distribution can be rather stressful. Using the wrong network card can be rather stressful, too.

And I'm sure the global uber-mega-corporation MicroSoft appreciates your business. :)

If you get an Intel Pro Wireless 2200, I didn't need to install a separate driver. It just worked.

im sick of my computer being extremely customizable, fast, and full of eye candy. i'm sick of applications running when i click them and i'm sick of the complete lack of BSOD.

i'm totally fed up with the support for this product and i'm REALLY pissed that its free.

any suggestions?

Thanks guys... 4 the reply...I see it took to write out my frustration to get a reply...3 weeks into xubuntu...I have been to trendenet...still cant install driver...terminal doesn't recognize many of the commands that are posted....I have Ubuntu on other machines...not pleased with the performance ...7.10...but will continue to try to figure it out...Xubuntu whole different ball game...I believe this is the future but still needs much more work for guys like me...Friends think I'm nuts wasting time on this...almost would agree...????
