I recently bought and set up a USB wireless device for an old laptop
my partner uses.  I just plugged it in.  The device was recognized
and worked right away.  I am using 8.10 and WICD on that machine.

is that they must necessarily be permanent, and that they cannot
calculate for the possible change of things.
