Submission + - Ubuntu Releases Patch for SSD-Destroying Bug (launchpad.net)

Rozine writes: Today Ubuntu released a patch for Karmic that stops the destruction of some SSDs caused by a software bug. This is great news, especially since just yesterday we sent my wife's Eee PC for warranty service due to this same issue. The kicker? The bug was first reported in October 2009! Is it time to look to other distros for the crown of easy-to-use Linux? To me, allowing a *hardware destroying* bug to sit for months, whatever the cause, is completely unacceptable. Hopefully I've applied the patch on my other computers fast enough to prevent permanent damage on them as well.
