How to kill Windows 8

Last month i bought a new Laptop. My old HP died.  The new Laptop comes with Win 8.

I try to use Win 8 but i think it was not so friendly and honestly it is time to have a Linux Desktop.  

I chose Ubuntu and the setup, on the Toshiba P875-S7310,  was easy and fast,  after i  installed an SSD HD and  more 8 GB RAM.
The only thing that did not work was the LAN.

How to solve the problem :

sudo apt-get install linux-headers-generic build-essential
wget
http://www.orbit-lab.org/kernel/compat-wireless-3-stable/v3.5/compat-wireless-3.5.1-1-snpc.tar.bz2
tar -xf compat-wireless-3.5.1-1-snpc.tar.bz2
cd compat-wireless-3.5.1-1-snpc
./scripts/driver-select alx
make
sudo make install
sudo modprobe alx


Very nice Ubuntu 12 on my laptop  :-)
