Warning: Running Linux on your laptop may damage its keyboard

Filed under: Blog — krkhan @ 6:46 am

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.
