thats true in my area of mumbai there are frequent voltage fluctuations due
to lack of transformers even a ups doesnt help me much so my downtimes are
mostly due to bad hardware but using mandriva linux i had a very less issues
of bad hardware than using any other linux i do a very high r&d on machine
as i am learning linux
