Many broken PCs, no more linux for me

My condolences Jackson on having dead hardware.  A LiveUSB with a persistence partition could help in the interim, I guess.  Are you able to secure one for use with other non-Linux computers at home?  I've been in the dead hardware situation you're in before but it isn't as bad now as my parents run Lubuntu and I usually carry a LiveUSB key with my house door lock keys.

The title of his email suggests differently than what you said 'Many broken PC's, no more Linux for me.'
So that is why I asked him those questions.  I know he is part of the team, he has helped me a lot when I had problems with the pre-release of 14.04 the last couple of months.

Why are you 'blaming' Linux on your broken laptop.  I know you don't know me well but I'm just curious what caused the 'breakage'?  I hope you return to Linux down the road, I believe it's still better than windows in many ways.  Anyway take care and hope to see you again/

I'm going to be operating in a very limited capacity for the next few weeks (or months). My main linux laptop has finally broken for good, and my dev pc is stil a long time off functioning. All my other stuff is windows, and can't really be changed from that. If i'm needed for anything, please email me.


Jackson is part of the Xubuntu team and I'm quite sure he's not blaming Linux for breaking the laptop, in fact I can't see anything related to that in the email. I would suppose it was natural causes. Or like in my case, I dropped it on the floor causing it never to start again, no matter what OS I was hoping for. ;)
