Linux wins the Clone Wars.

,----[ Quote ]
| As far as I am concerned, cloning windows is
| fine if the hardware you are cloning to is
| the same as the original windows hardware. If
| your hardware is different, as is most often
| the case, then you would be better off to go
| with a fresh install. With Linux it wasn't
| bothered at all with the different hardware.
| So for me it is official. Linux wins the
| Clone Wars. For windows all I can do is
| create a motivational poster with a picture
| of a BSOD and a huge FAIL! caption.

| seems to be what happened to a guy in Oregon
| who helps mod cable modems. Now, clearly,
| some people can and do use modded cable
| modems to access cable service that they
| haven't paid for, but there are plenty of
| legitimate reasons to hack your own hardware
| or to buy modded hardware.
