Every manufacturer has problems eventually. Sometimes a design just doesn't work out, or you get a bad run.

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.

A million times this. My ANUS laptop broke after 7 months and was still under warranty. I call support and some retarded Pajeet answers and just tells me to call Microsoft. I call Microsoft and they tell me to call ANUS. Nobody would help me.

This is when I started to use ThinkPads with GNU/Linux, the only hardware and software combination that won't shit itself in under a year of normal use.

This. I'll only buy Qualcomm and NVIDIA mobile stuff because they have half decent support for custom operating systems.

Libreboot for older Intel systems. Old AMD (pre-2011 or so) systems lack a PSP. For newer Intel stuff you can use ME Cleaner to contain the botnet and prevent unwanted network and memory access.

Normally I would put Apple in this list but the iMac pro is the first product in a long time that makes me think they're actually paying attention to computers again instead of just focusing on the iPhone. Will reserve a spot for Apple and wait to see if they take it further with the next iteration of MacBook.

Samsung is a full-on corporate meat-grinder for fresh graduates who dont know any better. In samsung you get to code for well below average salaries in a very stiff corporate environment.

Microsoft: Convicted monopolist, constantly destroys industry leadership by unethically killing or buying the competition.

Never in a million years will I ever get Seagate again. I wish I could find the image showing the literal tower of dead drives that we used to have in the old school building when I worked there, cause you had to replace one drive a week, if not more.

HTC (only low end Desire series)
Approx (fucking DOA headsets every time and fireworks instead of PSUs)
