While I'm at it, trying Fedora 27 on the old spare HDD on my upgraded 2009 PC workstation.
My wifi card needs the proprietary broadcom-wl driver from rpmfusion, which I had to google around to figure out, and which I have no idea how I *would* install if I didn't have a working slow-wifi USB dongle that worked with stock kernel.
Ubuntu provides an easier way to install the driver, but still I think needs network to do it. :)
The wifi-off option can be disabled, and for now I'm just going to explicitly lock the screen when I want. :P
