The point that I'm trying to make is that even if it is simply a kernel 
issue not specific to Ubuntu, to the user Ubuntu is Ubuntu.

Also if these few inexperienced users manage to get their... somehow 
discover or learn to understand...

Or even solve it.

Everyone else who hasn't fallen into the trap yet will not.

You cannot expect inexperienced computer USERS to know AHEAD OF TIME 
what to look out for.

If you are also not going to broadcast this, I mean publicise this.

Then new people will walk into it time and time again.

At minimum there must be an advisory on the public download site not to 
use Ubuntu 17.10 with those laptops.

I mean like, are you going to inform anyone?
