No it was a joke, obviously I contributed (I got the t-shirt, which is also funny because I'm probably the only silicon valley resident to pay for a startup t-shirt)

A proof of the bikeshedding law!
 
Fun trivia:

Some things are just more complex than others.

Damn French, they ruined France

The next person to claim btrfs is ready to be the default in Fedora will have to come and fix my filesystem, dead after just 3 weeks of usage - and no btrfs wiki allowed!

(For the record, thanks to the wiki I found the magic sequence of dd commands to restore it to a point where it was still corrupt, but at least the rescue commands would not crash immediately. Still, an assertion that the superblock is valid, when I'm clearly telling you it is not, does not seem smart to me)

There is a bright side: you are not on NTFS. (spent 2 days restoring a destroyed partition for one of my friends that had important data with no backups on a windows machine)

Dear Lazyweb,

With much sadness, I will soon need to buy a new laptop to replace the 6 year old Dell Latitude that served me so far.
At the moment I'm undecided between the 15" Mac Book Pro in its standard configuration and the Thinkpad W540 with a few small upgrades but before I commit to one or the other, I'd like to ask you:

Are there any known hardware issues with any of that? Or anything that you found to be terrible, like an uncomfortable keyboard or a poor screen? Is the battery life in either acceptable?
Is there any Linux incompatibility? For example, does wifi work without issues in the macbook (under Fedora)? Does the Thinkpad touchpad work (with multitouch, edge scrolling, etc.) with standard drivers? Does the Thinkpad do Wifi direct properly (as I see the Intel 7260 is the only chip that supports it)?

Unfortunately for some suggestions, I need a new laptop very soon (that is, within 2 weeks), so in the end I decided to go for the mac. Thank you all for the answers!

Hi everyone! It's been a while since I last blogged, and I should probably even stop pretending I will blog more, but anyway... Today is the third day of the GNOME Hackfest here at the Endless Mobile offices, in the startup...
