can it really do worse to me than Linux has? (Operating system not found after an update - fairly consistently to the point where i got used to manually patching the MBR after every update)


I've been bitten by this one on more than one occasion, and for the most part, my Linux instances are all running as VMs - what should, by now, be a well-known virtualized configuration, and not on bare metal, which means a lot of the unknown/strange/uncommon hardware is removed from the equation. How updates can still mess that up is puzzling to say the least.

I almost certainly won't do it, but the fact that I've been driven to the point where it even occurred to me is more than a little disappointing.


I'd still take their hardware, I just refuse to give them any money for it. AKA, my justification for owning a used MacBook laptop.
