    [all variants] Re: My experience with System76

    I would also like to register a thumbs-up for System76.

    I'm typing this on a Starling5 netbook. It's currently the only box I have, as the last of three used ThinkPads in a row went belly-up last...

    [other] Re: starling 5 spontaneously shuts down

    Issue is still occurring. I spoke to System76 support and have been urged to send the unit in, but am waiting on some kind of shipping label.

  9. question about installing Debian (or other distro)

    Good morning, all -

    I am interested in trying out other Linux distros on my Starling. I actually have installed distros (as well as BSDs and even Plan9) on laptops before, so it's a familiar...
  10. [SOLVED] Re: wireless issue with star5 in one location (so far)
