Re: OT: what do you know about Linux?

It's my understanding Linux ignores bios entirely and gets its work done by other means. On Tue, 26 Apr 2016, Juan R. de Silva wrote:

On my desktop I still use and old keyboard with PS/2 connector.
My mouse an USB one, so the mouse PS/2 port on motherboard remains free.

A couple of days ago I had to reconnect my keyboard to motherboard. I was
doing it in hurry and in the dark, just to the touch.

A day later while restarting the machine I was surprised by message from
BIOS:"No keyboard detected." However, when started, Debian had no trouble
with my keyboard. It was fully functional.

Today I had a minute to pull out my desktop tower and found that I
mistakenly plugged keyboard connector into the mouse PS/2 port.

I wish to see Windows trying to swallow this. :-) Or I am outdated on
Windows skills, am I?
