Subject: RE: why did I think windows 8 would work
Linux is not the Ultimate Solution To All Computer Issues, either. It's good, but a lot of interesting software doesn't run on it unless you use some sort of shell like Wine. You may have trouble finding drivers for various devices (and you won't believe how easily Windows 8 installs obscure devices).
I use Linux (usually Ubuntu) on computers that don't have enough power to handle Windows, but then I have to teach the user how to use Linux. Not as easy as you'd think.
