Wireless on Windows Sucks Slimy Green Toads

I'm sorry but Wireless (Linksys specifically) on Windows can just plain bite me.  Yesterday I had to work with Francois at his place so I had to reset all my wireless settings.  Now this morning as I'm trying to get my email and run out the door for a plane (offline all weekend) -- nothing works.  I do the restart dance.  Nada.  I shut down and pull the card.  Nada.  Zippo.  Bupkus.  Zero.  Finally it comes up.  I have to hand it to Apple -- I've never had an iBook have Wifi issues.  Us Windows folks are sitting there swearing to beat the band and the Mac folk just look smug.  I just wish Apple could make a decent keyboard.  I'm realizing that for my next laptop, I could buy a powerbook, run Yellow Dog Linux on it and at least have a machine where ALT+TAB worked properly.  And, of course, one where installing an application like QuickTime didn't require a restart.  What's up with that?

Sigh.  Wireless on Windows.  Sucks.
