Linux "At long last, it looks like there is an adequate solution to the Active State Power Management (ASPM) problem in the Linux kernel , a.k.a. the well-known and wide-spread power regression in the Linux 2.6.38 kernel, which has been causing many laptops to go through significantly more power than they should. This is not another workaround, but rather a behavioral change in the kernel to better decide when the PCI Express ASPM support should be toggled."

After reading this, I am never going to buy Gigabyte again. You tell your customers to change their OS because you are too lazy to do anything about? Yea, screw that. I don't mean you have to fix it, but don't tell me that I need to switch to Windows as your defacto response. I will just not buy your crappy hardware.
