Yes. "Like to think." And thus it shall be so.

Still lacking in logic, since I've had the board for a couple of months,
but the failure didn't occur until a kernel released just a few days
ago. How could the hardware vendor's testing have anything to do with
that regression?

Here's something that makes just as much sense: Windows users who buy
ASUS hardware are supporting the product volumes that make it possible
for us to get affordable hardware we can use to run Linux. We're
benefitting from Windows users.

Anyway, what is it with this vendetta against certain mainboard vendors?
Besides, if you don't want to help me, then fine. Leave it be.
