    RE: Help make 7 an unlucky number for Microsoft
    Could you start by not referring to Microsft as M$? People dont like having something they use / know insulted. It makes the defensive. Often aggravated. Never a good first step.

    RE: Any suggestions? No seriously, I need them.
    I found Gentoo generally taught me the Gentoo way of doing things. Once i was setup i just repeated the same few commands over and over and got bored snot-less of compiling for the sake of milliseconds of my time. :P Different people different tastes and different learning routines though i guess :) Each to their own :)

    RE: FACTS before uninstalling windows and use linux
    Most Linux OS's dont need hardware drivers to be installed (except graphics cards). If you remove then reinstall windows you will need to install drivers again. Try posting your laptops exact name or the hardware in it here, someone should be able to tell you if it works fine with Linux. Also, try a live CD. That way you dont actually need to install anything on your PC and nothing changes.
