Please tell me your joking. Linux' crappy suspend support is a common
reason people give me for not wanting Linux anywhere near their laptops.

I have a single boot laptop that's somewhat of a mobile debugging station
that needs Linux and I absolutely hate it. Right now my laptop takes far
too long to boot and even if it didn't I wish I could suspend.

I'm actually a huge Linux fan.. I use it exclusively on my server and on
my PC but if I get another laptop I will probably run something else on
it. Linux is just too annoying for that use.
