Am I asking too much for a FREE OS?

Everybody spend their precious time to help others, that's very helpful.

But it seems like there is no support from UBUNTU team,
how could we even get through the barrier of not using Microsoft's OSes?

No free lunch of course, but it seems to me some issues have never really
been solved.

I read lot's of people have problem with their WIFI, not just for my OLD USB wifi adapter. I don't have problem with WIFI in XP/Server.

I posted here and there, and seems like no answer,
and I do not get any reply from UBUNTU support team,
forgive me if I run out of google's keywords.

WIFI WUSB11 Linksys ver 2.8 :

I just need a simple answer, is my WIFI going to work in UBUNTU with a layman effort?

I like linux and UBUNTU had put great effort in providing me such a great OS,
but if a basic internet connection will need to spent sooo much time to setup,
and it still doesn't work. IS IT WORTH to switch to UBUNTU at all ?

Try using a supported Wifi card and your troubles will disappear.

I suppose that OP has tried a liveCD, just to see if the thing is supported out-of-the-box? When all is said and done, there is no guarantee that any given device will work in a particular Windows installation.
