Submission + - Dell thinks Ubuntu makes computers more fragile? (

WolfWings writes: "Apparently Dell has decided that Ubuntu-based computers are ineligible for their famed CompleteCare service, or any form of hardware warranty what-so-ever. The news has only recently hit Dell's own IdeaStorm website, but after so recently decided to support Linux on their machines, including limited technical support, Dell seems to be squandering any possible good-will with this decision to leave purchasers of these machines high and dry for hardware warranty coverage."

"The algorithm to do that is extremely nasty. You might want to mug someone with it." -- M. Devine, Computer Science 340
