Funny (so to speak) twist: I've bought a wifi USB stick which said
"Linux" on the box. I thought installing the driver would be easy (like
a Windows installer, of course!) -- but no, apprently it's made for
32-bit architecture, and mine is 64-bit. I've tried to compile
nonetheless, but that didn't work. So now I have a useless USB stick,
still no wifi, not to mention the book I could have bought instead...
