Kentucky Officials "Changed Votes At Voting Machines"

MC68000 Re:Apologize Now (494 comments)

There is a huge difference between engineering a clumsy fraud on a local election with low turnout and engineering a fraud involving several states in hundreds of counties using many different voting systems. Not to say that I oppose a paper trail.

Retailer Refuses Hardware Repair Due To Linux

MC68000 ACPI? (1018 comments)

Obviously in this particular case linux couldn't have caused the problem, but in general, the idea that linux could cause hardware damage doesn't seem patently absurd to me. ACPI on linux is still hit or miss thanks to non-standards compliant hardware. I had at least one time where linux failed to throttle the CPU properly, causing my Dell Inspiron 5150 to run around 20C hotter in linux than on windows. Clearly a bad ACPI driver can damage hardware.
