I don't think I avoid any brands at all costs. That would be pretty autistic. I prefer certain things because I'm familiar with them, but that doesn't mean I won't try anything new. Sometimes you get a lemon and have to rma a part, but it doesn't mean that company is shit across the board.

Seagate

Any server Dell's produced in 2017.

Cheap rj45 crimp tools

I pretty much get to replace components in a large contracted datacenter for a very popular cloud provider, so I see a lot of hardware failure with 10's of thousands of servers to manage.

I cannot reiterate enough about Seagate. I don't think you could pay me to use a Seagate HDD at this point. I've seen entire lots have 50-60% failure rates.

Every manufacturer has problems eventually. Sometimes a design just doesn't work out, or you get a bad run. If you're consistently non-competitive though, then you'll run into the ground as your competition eats your lunch over and over again. Margins on tech are so tight that basically you get what you pay for.

Brand loyalty is retarded.

I'd just like to interject for a moment. What you’re referring to as Linux, is in fact, GNU/Linux, or as I’ve recently taken to calling it, GNU plus Linux. Linux is not an operating system unto itself, but rather another free component of a fully functioning GNU system made useful by the GNU corelibs, shell utilities and vital system components comprising a full OS as defined by POSIX.
Many computer users run a modified version of the GNU system every day, without realizing it. Through a peculiar turn of events, the version of GNU which is widely used today is often called “Linux”, and many of its users are not aware that it is basically the GNU system, developed by the GNU Project. There really is a Linux, and these people are using it, but it is just a part of the system they use.
Linux is the kernel: the program in the system that allocates the machine’s resources to the other programs that you run. The kernel is an essential part of an operating system, but useless by itself; it can only function in the context of a complete operating system. Linux is normally used in combination with the GNU operating system: the whole system is basically GNU with Linux added, or GNU/Linux. All the so-called “Linux” distributions are really distributions of GNU/Linux.

>zotac that low
I'm not a fanboy, but I may be retarded. Last year I bought a 1050ti made by Zotac
and I regretted it ever since I learned of some problems that certain GPUs had
by being clocked at unstable speeds. I forget the error code but I had a couple hard crashes to reboots that seemingly went a away so I ignored it.
So, how dumb am I? Also, should I avoid technology when drunk?

Nothing. I evaluate products on their build quality and technical specs/capabilities not who made them. Even brands that are typically really shitty can sometimes produce a golden turd.

On top of that sometimes good companies will have shakeups where leadership changes and all of a sudden there is a major decline in quality or vice-versa and historically shitty companies will get new management that cleans stuff up and tries to actually make the brand not shit.

Once again, I'd just like to interject for a moment. What you're referring to as Linux,
is in fact, GNU/Linux, or as I've recently taken to calling it, GNU plus Linux.
Linux is not an operating system unto itself, but rather another free component
of a fully functioning GNU system made useful by the GNU corelibs, shell
utilities and vital system components comprising a full OS as defined by POSIX.

Many computer users run a modified version of the GNU system every day,
without realizing it. Through a peculiar turn of events, the version of GNU
which is widely used today is often called "Linux", and many of its users are
not aware that it is basically the GNU system, developed by the GNU Project.

There really is a Linux, and these people are using it, but it is just a
part of the system they use. Linux is the kernel: the program in the system
that allocates the machine's resources to the other programs that you run.
The kernel is an essential part of an operating system, but useless by itself;
it can only function in the context of a complete operating system. Linux is
normally used in combination with the GNU operating system: the whole system
is basically GNU with Linux added, or GNU/Linux. All the so-called "Linux"
distributions are really distributions of GNU/Linux.
