Warning: Running Linux on your laptop may damage its keyboard
Or, at least that’s what HP say when your laptop’s keys become sticky and unresponsive and you tell them that you’ve run a copy of Ubuntu Edgy on it. Also, as mentioned in the Joe Barr article link above, major hardware manufacturers are not only reluctant to pre-install Linux on their machines, but are also cautious of selling machines without pre-installing any operating system.
In simpler words, they can only pre-install Windows for you, and if you choose to use a different operating system (not just Linux), you would be voiding the warranty. Now that‘s real innovation from Microsoft.Tags: HP, Linux, Technology
