""Well, sometimes there truly is little choice. ""
If you have no choice, then you have no choice.
What I have a problem with is people, posing as experts, recommending to new users to
blacklist open source drivers to get NDIS wrapper working.
This is when I have the same exact devices and they are working perfectly well with no NDIS
What they should do instead is figure out what went wrong, file a bug report, and get a
working driver and try to get that stuff back into the distro, or at least provide a download,
so that they are actually helping the people they are claiming to help instead of advising
users to try to shoehorn Windows drivers into their kernel.
