Not if its a SurfaceBook
>Sure there is, embodied as UCC 2-314 [https://www.law.cornell.edu/ucc/2/2-314]: courts may imply a Warranty of merchantability when (1) the seller is the merchant of such goods, and (2) the buyer uses the goods for the ordinary purposes for which such goods are sold. Thus, a buyer can sue a seller for breaching the implied warranty by selling goods unfit for their ordinary purpose.
The problem that I see with this argument is that the PC came with Windows installed, and it is known to run under the included operating system. Thus it can be argued that the Ordinary Purposes is to run Windows to complete tasks that the user wants to complete. Installing another OS seems to fall outside that, even is said OS is known to run properly on the device.
Your second argument might hold water if the buyer specifically asked if Linux would run on the computer, and the answer was an affirmative.
OK, slight background. Basic applied physics knowledge from 20+ years ago.
How does this qualify as teleportation if you have an optical particle, and a optical transport medium? Isn't this the photon hitting the surface of the fiberoptic transport medium, changing state to an optical waveform, traveling along the transport to the endpoint, exiting and changing state again, and then being detected as a photon?
Also somewhat confusing as photon's have no mass.
If this had been a neutron, or some other actual subatomic particle with mass, then I could certainly conceptualize it as teleportation. Couldn't this simply be the researchers finding a "sweet spot" in "transmission frequency" for said optical fiber to allow transmission nearer theoretical maximum (i.e. the speed of light). Have they tried the same experiment on a different optical fiber from a different vendor and achieved the same results?
