    It's interesting a Linux-advertised laptop would ship with an NVIDIA GPU, but I find it understandable after trying to deal with compute with AMD

    I like the "linux compatible"... everything is linux compatible lol (bless the people that make linux work on everything even the most weird)

    Not really, there are stupid firmware and ACPI bugs that, for weird technical reasons, usually hurt Linux more than Windows. Lots of them are low-hanging fruits for the notebook vendors, so it's good when they do additional testing with Linux. It's just ultra-stupid when some component like wifi isn't even recognized as a device, even though there is very good driver support on Linux.

    But there is always someone that fix it... And you don't have that on Windows or MacOS

    Some things unfortunately can't be fixed, e.g. there seems to be no fix for integrated wifi adapter recognition with cheap-ass Trekstor Surfbook A13B.
    Some ACPI bugs have workarounds by disabling stuff that can have side effects. There are often no good fixes available for bugs in the proprietary firmware of notebooks, only manufacturer can really make sure of that.
