My Dual USB ibook is broken again after i installed gentoo. I'm almost certain there's no corelation, but I've noticed the "half-life" on the motherboards is (seems to be) less when I have linux installed. Anyone else have the same experience?

P.S. this is the fourth time the logic board has gone out, so next time I get a new ibook. Incentive to wear it out quick, don't you think?

In my experience Apple has about no quality control with their products. I had my logic board go out 6 times on my iBook until they finally let me have a new one. I used the new one for about 6 months and again the logic board went out. I was so mad I finally decided to get a new x86 laptop (and my 1.6 Pentium M blows away the 1.2 G4 chip in the iBook).

I did have gentoo on it, but I had the logic board go out a few times before I even put linux on it.

All I can say is that I will never buy a Mac ever again. I'm not the only one I know who has had problem with their Mac laptops.
