    Linux is not Windows. You will be disappointed as long as you think it is.

    I've never seen that "advertisement, sorry." MS-Windows didn't have an IP stack in the early years. Windows networking was really bad, actually.

    wget and curl run on MS-Windows, BTW. They are clunky on that platform due to the terrible shell experience there. I do not know of any built-in queue manager for MS-Windows. There's a tool built-into all Linux called "batch". It is part of cron and at that are used on your Linux computer all the time to keep the OS running and handle maintenance jobs. I just prefer Task Spooler for handling my work queues. I've been trying to lead you to the pond to drink, but I cannot force it.

    If you want the MS-Windows experience, there's an entire OS that does it. A few people use it. I run it about once a week for a few minutes too handle 1 specific job that I don't have a better solution on Linux, yet. It runs a program from 2012 for me. I expect to keep using that program until I'm dead, worst case.
