Interesting. Sean O'Donnell mentioned in private email that Linux had
issues with modern built-in wifi chipsets. That softened the already
gentle blow of getting a machine without built-in wifi. That Windows
doesn't even support such chipsets well turns the lack of built in
wifi into a fully fledged feature. :-)
