I can't say that I've had a hardware problem with it, but just that it's
not that good at working with a system.  Linux is full of services,
services that need a functioning network, services that don't work well
if the network is down or starts up too late.  Network Manager doesn't
start up early enough.

Not always.  Some things are cheap because they have captured the mass
market, and have sales numbers in their favour.

The big problem is built in hardware that can't be avoided, and systems
where you can't easily add to (e.g. laptops).

[tim localhost ~]$ uname -r

Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored.  I
read messages from the public lists.
