I am pretty sure it was YOU who said he bought a laptop for Linux but thought "there might be a problem with wireless". Who is the fool?

The problems people have had with Linux screwing their system are well documented. Your story about this laptop was just a bunch of crap and I called you on it.
Perhaps it did but YOU are the one who claimed it was XP that caused the problem. What exactly was the point of your post if it wasn't to spread FUD about XP when you had no clue what really caused the problem.
So if the system was running Linux and there was a power issue that trashed the HD would you say that Linux was at fault?
What other parbreastions were on the drive? I am not aware of many systems that come parbreastioned from the vendor other than a recovery parbreastion on some systems. How do you know these other parbreastions were OK? Also, if it happened to be writing to the XP parbreastion at the time the problem occurred then yes I would expect only that parbreastion to be affected. Any 'sensible' person would understand that.
I really don't care if he wants to install Linux on his laptop. I only care that you tried to use his story to spread FUD about XP with absolutely nothing to back it up.
How does he like it on the pedestal you have placed him on?
