http://ubuntuforums.org – Please Listen read this article to get the story / my idea. Story: I have been jumping Operating systems trying to get internet vista didn't work, went to xp worked but, I lagged, got ubuntu 12.04 and, worked well but, My wireless adapter is for windows platforms so was not supported I googled WINE but, everything I found to get it required internet. So I went back to Vista. Now I lag on the internet. I want ubuntu but, not if I can't get the internet on it. My Idea: I have a 16Gig Flashdrive - more like 10Gig now but - and vista on my main hard drive so I was wondering If I install ubuntu (Hardware)
