finally starting to complain publicly about system76 oryx pro badness system 76 failure to fix or adequate customer support

A person on the fediverse:

“I think maybe my next computer will be from #System76.”


i bought a $4K+ machine from them three years ago, intending for it to last me a decade, and it never worked properly (despite spending a lot of time at their recondition facility) and they never made it right.

What ultimately killed it is the power intake not working, and that exposed piece is an inextricable part of the ~$2K motherboard. The choice of that motherboard architecture alone is absolutely inexcusable in itself, but everything about their support was inexcusable too.

In other news i’m looking to hire someone to continue all the fights with companies i got too busy and tired to continue myself.
