I just got my USB wifi adapter and new mouse today, and of course my first thing was to set up network sharing. It went in a flash on Windows. I installed the wifi adapter’s drivers, and it sorted out the rest. Internet sharing was pretty much automatic.
I noted earlier how uploading a picture to twitter on Windows 8 from Chromium on my laptop freezes the whole machine for minutes, but i thought that was just because i had a 720p video, multiple browser tabs and an irc client running too (now guess what was i doing).
So in preparation for the longer periods i’ll be spending away from home during the summer (and also a “long-time investment”), i bought an ASUS X201E notebook. It’s not a powerhorse, but it’s cheap and good enough for what i need it for (translating and checking email). It arrived the other day, and i had some fun setting it up.
