Boy - you sure are having fun with your new toy :)

I'm having fun too troubleshooting a new Windows 7 Inspiron Ultrabook's audio and wifi. It has a hyper sensitive combined mic/headphone socket, which puts on a banshee routine at the slightest excuse, particularly on startup, so you have no way of strangling it for several excruciating minutes. Plus it has several mic systems which choose to randomly switch on/off.

And the wifi has a mind of its own, occasionally deciding not to stay connected while several other adjacent devices are.

Of course that's after having to gnash my teeth through the tortuous startup routine :(

Nice to be able to chortle over how painless Linux is on startup/ shutdown :)
