    Somehow HP is successfully showing the middle finger to customers when it comes to Linux support for their laptop models...

      When it comes to Intel SSDs the updates seem to be few and infrequent. I don't know if that's good or bad.

      I can tell you this about Intel's SSD firmware updates. They seem to require a Windows-based program that appears to be hard-coded to look for and use M$ Internet Exploder to interact with Intel's web site and download the latest firmware updates which are typically embedded in the latest version of the program.

      That's been my experience with Intel SSD firmware updates over the past 5 or more years.

        Exactly, thats why I hope it will be different in the future . We need a better solution.

          What prevents Intel's bootable ISO from updating the firmware? Does it not support your SSD or something?
