+1 for Ubuntu Wireless

That's right, I have a positive comment on Ubuntu Wireless. I just move last week and previously I connected to the internet via a wired connection to the router. At my new place the router is in my room-mates room so I have to use a wireless connection, except for the fact that I do not have a wireless card in my desktop computer. After unpacking I discovered that I had a old Linksys Compact USB wireless adapter. I have heard that it is very difficult to get working in Ubuntu, plus it being a 4 year old adapter had me wondering if it would work at all. I plugged it into my USB port and almost instantly, there where a list of wireless networks available. So +1 for a working wireless connection in Ubuntu.
