Spent installing or sleeping? I know that it can take a download some
time to update but this is like saying you work on your clock 24/7. I
would only count the time I spend looking at it or adjusting it.

As I have said before, if you buy the right hardware you could avoid
this. I don't know what you get paid but if it is over $20 and hour
surely it would be worth it to buy a good new WIFI that works with
Linux and then work 8 hours at your job to pay for it. Or maybe it is
build into your laptop that you bought before you got into Linux?

One thing I would like to see is an install program that asks you all
the questions at the beginning not one here and one there, throughout
the install. I mean why wait until the end to ask about passwords and
users and all that? Do it at the start and let me get on with my day.
