I just knew vital instructions were missing when attempting, un-successfully, to hook up my Huawei E160x USB wireless modem to the last 2 Ubuntu releases. Have complained about it in previous posts.
Found the much-vaunted Linux "Community" much less than helpful in what I believed should be a simple task. First they suggested some gizmo called an ntdr package, which I followed to the letter but found critical lines missing from the instructions.
Ended up a VERY sad and frustrating time. I gave up for a few months, took that long to get over the experience.
It would seem that the Spin Doctors and Linux Fanboys are bigger BS Artists than even Microsoft. Not one of them told me about Wine, which is SUPPOSED to make installing Win Software a "breeze." Yeah, well, I am not too keen on wasting another 14 or so days and nights trying to fly blind.
