    Not particularly, but you're much more likely to run into incompatible hardware with a laptop. Also, since many laptops don't actually follow the ACPI standards, you can run into weird things with suspend or hibernate, etc.
    There are two major products that come out of Berkeley: LSD and UNIX. We don't believe this to be a coincidence.
