Crikey, a .pdf within a outlook? .msg.
Here's the article at the source:
Amusingly, your attachment has the name:
Laptops with Linus have compatibility issues.pdf
Anyway, the content is neither surprising or alarming. I also
had problems with my powershot camera with linux the other day.
Then a few kernels, and a distro upgrade later it started working.
Indeed people should do the homework before they commit to linux as
their main machine. Then again it can be argued that 'doing the
homework' is an unreasonable imposition on a buyer and you should
be able to assume things just work.
