Phase 2 - i made it harder than it needed to be

So here I am, all concerned that the Dell proprietary wireless LAN card is going to be a bear to install into Ubuntu. I went to the forums, followed the directions and splat. Nothing.

Then, a little box popped up and said "Updated drivers are available". And guess what? Bo-duh boom. Just like that, it's done. Working. In fact this is my first blog post on Linux.

Ok, so where's the challenge? Where's the hassle? Where's the headache? What am I missing here? This is almost too easy.

So, on to phase 3, installing programs I like. Among these are Digsby (an instant messenger), Picasa - a photo manager/editor from Google, and I don't know what else.
