I have a raspberry pi and it has 2 configuration files in
/etc/network/, although I set it up I'm very new to networking and not sure what each of the lines do or what the differences are between the two files, particularly with regards to

I read through this question but I have the following question:
With config 1 and the ethernet cable connected to the internet what is the expected behaviour? Also using config 1 is there any reason a windows computer shouldn't be able to connect to the ad hoc network?
The raspberry should create an ad hoc wifi network that someone can connect to.

The raspberry pi will connect to the internet if it has the correct settings in the wpa file or if an ethernet cable is connected to it.
