I did not mean to single out laptops. But from the traffic on this list that
appears to be a good(?) way to have trouble. Buy a laptop. The other way is to
buy some 'strange' unsupported hardware. Another way is to buy an unsupported
WiFi. I don't do that. YMMV and it obviously does.

As I have said. I have yet to have a kernel problem. Since hmm... 1999, might
be 1998, or so when I first tried Linux.

Lucky? I guess. But I doubt luck has anything to do with it.
