Agreed. Years ago when Seagate acquired Maxtor, I swore then I'd never buy
another Seagate drive. Maxtor was crap, always the worst drives and prone
to failure, now who knows where they're inserting them in their drive
lines. Interesting to hear they continue that tradition.
That said it'll work fine under linux, just probably expect it to die.
