I never said Ubuntu doesn't work on cheap laptops, I believe I said the
exact opposite. I've run linux on cheap/old/inexpensive laptops for years.

It is what I said when I talked about constructive critic. I thought in
the beginning of the email that It was going to be a constructive critic
and feedback. But most of the email, you would agree with me that is
based on subjective opinions like ubuntu does not work on cheap laptops.
I think neither all Microsoft OSes run in all hardware nor Ubuntu does.
That kind of statements based on more in opinions than in facts make
difficult to think that it is a constructive critic.
Besides, the targets are not always the same. Sometimes there are groups
that want the latest hardware with the latest features (maybe gamers,
graphic designers, etc), but while there are others that prefere a
reliable and supported hardware. Normally latest hardware sometimes has
problems to be FULLY supported (and normally need revisions) in either OSes.
