I don't know if I would really call that a weak point. Anyway, it depends
on your hard disk if it is a problem for you or not. From the bug report
you can find out how your hard disk behaves. If it is a problem, you
could still install the workaround mentioned in that Launchpad thread.

It is true that there is such a bug. It is not true that the bug is in Ubuntu.

The bug is in the default hard drive configuration as set by the
manufacturer. The reason that Windows does not hammer the drive is
because Windows has yet another bug, which causes the OS to ignore the
drive's default configuration settings. So there you have what I like
to call an even number of bugs, which 'fix' each other.

to which i replied:
manuel, please don't top post.

you did actually read the bug report right? did you see this line:

"This problem has been confirmed in Ubuntu as well as in other
distributions."

...which is a clear giveaway that this problem is not Ubuntu-specific.
right at the top of the page they also list Mandriva, Fedora and Debian.

if you read that page you also saw there is a very easy workaround to
the problem. annoying? yes. weak point? not really. not to a
competent user.

Sounds like an under-the-table agreement between M$ and HD manufacturer
to discredit Linux!

Oh, great! I love conspiracy theories (epecially about MS), but this is
not true. Otherwise there would be the same conspiracy with previous
Linux distributions. I.e. Ubuntu Dapper doesn't have the bug.

This is a great idea. Let's declare the world that there are no weak
points in Ubuntu, there are just incompetent users :-)
