Hmm... That's indeed what would happen for a GNU/Linux system, but
I thought with Microsoft the user is expected to say either "oh, this
adapter sucks" or "damn! what am I doing wrong?" since it wouldn't occur
to the user that it could be Microsoft's fault.
Of course, that'd be even more true with an Apple product (after all,
"it's soo pretty it can't possibly be wrong!").
