Yeah. No shit. However, long term fixes don't help the OP do his online
banking right now, and it's the right now problems that stop people
using linux long term.
Don't get me wrong, I think HSBC should sort their shit out and fix
Incidentally, changing banks isn't the easiest solution. What if you
have to move your two mortgages, chequing account, savings account,
*and* update all your bill payments and salary deposits? Rebooting into
windows sounds much easier to me.
