I didn't write about APM for two reasons.

First, it isn't an issue with me. I've been using Linux on a laptop for several years now. Since 1999, actually.

Second, not only do I not know much about APM, I haven't any basis for comparison of APM on Linux because I don't use Windows on my desktop or laptop.

I guess you don't know anyone that uses a laptop the same way I do. As I note in the story, my usage is not about styling at Starbucks or elsewhere. I use it for work when I am on the road. Motel rooms have power outlets and I just plug it in. Ditto for press rooms.

Obviously it is important to you. Why don't you write about APM on Linux laptops and submit the story to NF?
