Since it is typically two different groups inside of a huge company
responsible for marketing the computer and designing the computer, I'd
say that this is generally a poor conclusion.
That being said, as a former Sharp notebook owner: beware. I found their
support to be miserable even for Windows - they didn't bother to post
new drivers from the Japan site on the USA site. I think that the USA
sub of the company is really geared to marketing and selling black box
items; I found Sony to be much the same way (just not as bad).
