Apple "Apple just posted its hotly-anticipated Q2 2013 earnings, and the company posted a profit of $9.5b on revenues of $43.6b, compared to $11.6b in profit on $39.2b in revenue this quarter last year and $13.1b in profit on $54.5b in revenue last quarter. That's right in line with the company's guidance from last quarter. Most importantly, iPhone sales are fairly flat year-over-year. Apple sold 37.04 million in Q2 2013 versus last year's 35.1 million, a modest growth of seven percent. iPad sales for the quarter were 19.5 million, up a massive 65 percent from last year's 11.8 million, but the average selling price (ASP) dropped fairly steeply year-over-year, likely due to the introduction of the cheaper iPad mini."

Yeah Miguel is an odd duck (in terms of his journey founding gnome to abandoning the free software movement completely). I can't speak to his experience, only my own. I haven't had to do any of that muck on my thinkpad in a long time. And when I did, it was on installation, not in the middle of a vacation.

I either no what I'm doing better than him ( unlikely), I'm just lucky, or I do different things than he does in a different environment.

Now that I think about it, UEFI non mac systems are a bit flaky to deal with in liunx right now ( due mainly to secure boot & implementation issues with the manufacturer), so maybe not on those right now.
