The fault lies with either: a. the person who chose to use Fedora on that hardware, or b. the person who chose to buy that hardware for a Fedora system.
    You're not the shiniest diamond in the ring, are you?

    I retract the previous post (I would have deleted/edited it out, but edit/delete doesn't work...).

    I still find it amusing that all of you see yourself fit to give definitive advise on what I (and my employer) should or should not do, even though you don't really know what I, or my employer do.
    But, as I was stupid enough to engage in such a useless exchange, let me end with this [1].

    I have no idea what your particular situation was, nor do i really care. I'm just saying as a general rule, Fedora seems like a risky proposition in that role. Your story seems to back up that assertion rather than discrediting it. Every rule has it's exception, of course.

    @gilboa:
    I disliked you a lot less when you where being a overly bombastic intelectual, but now you have choosen to victem role tacting... How pathetic...

    Notice that that xkcd you just linked to is actually funny since it is illustrating idiotic compulsive behavior in a recursive form. You just realised that you literaly made fun of yourself. Also, if you do have a bit of humor: the game.
