    because executable files for a Mac or Linux won't run on windows and
    executables for Windows won't run on a Mac or Linux..

    but, even if you could get them to run, all those drivers for Windows
    won't work on Linux anyway..

    the good new is that bluetooth works fine on Linux..
    the bad news is i've never used it so help much past:

    - click on YaST
    - give your root password when asked
    - on the left side of the new window, click on Hardware
    - then on the right side click on Bluetooth

    from there you are on your own (until and unless someone else happens
    alone)...BUT, more good news: on the left of that new window is HELP!

    then, when you get that done and have time to do some reading, or get
    frustrated when most of the stuff you learned as a Window's user won't
    work with Linux.... and BEFORE you give up and go back, read
    "Linux is Not Windows": http://tinyurl.com/8b9s6

    and this http://tinyurl.com/5hkyeh which is good for all new here..

    welcome!
