I'll bite in feeding the troll.

If you feel that strongly about it - you are free to not only leave the
list, but install an OS of another choice that may be better suited for
your hardware.

Instead of making a donkey of yourself, file a bug report (if it is a
bug), ask for help properly? Try decaf?

No reason to make others upset or make enemies when it's only a silly
piece of hardware and and OS.

Deep breath, walk away - enjoy the day, come back with another view
point and you may find things (and people) will be more responsive.

Just my .02 worth.

Keep well,
