Wow, my Linux disk-related rant seems to have been featured on Linux Hater. I am strangely pleased, although for the record, I hate all computers and all operating systems, not just Linux.
Now, I've been advised that another hot topic right now is some kind of ridiculous conspiracy theory about a laptop vendor who "deliberately" made Linux's ACPI implementation not work on their system, while Windows works fine. Without going to the unnecessary effort of looking up the article or checking any facts, I can tell you that I already thoroughly debunked all Linux-ACPI conspiracy theories a couple of years ago. You may find it either horrifying or funny.
