Please help me /g/
I have a Lenovo Thinkpad x201i. Today I went to turn it on and after 5 seconds, a little "piw" sound went off and it died. I tried to boot it again and again, but each time it did the "piw" sound and died sometimes after 5 seconds, other times immediately.
Finally, it just stopped turning on. The charging light stopped displaying. If I press the power button, nothing happens.
After searching for solutions online, I came across a solution where you press the power button 10 times at one second intervals, then hold the power button for 30 seconds.
I tried it of course and when I plugged the charger back in, the green charging light lit up for about half a second before my laptop went back to how it was before I did the static discharge. Wouldn't turn on, no lights displaying...
What should I do? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The first thing you should know about the C programming language is that it is fucked beyond belief. It was designed in the late 60s, when computers were fucking slow as hell, and half the programmers were high ALL THE TIME.
Dennis Ritchie, one of the inventors of C, definitely had to be high most of the time. Seriously, just like, go fucking read some of the shit he wrote back then. He tries to sound like he's all mysterious and wizardly, but really he's just a fucking pothead or something. Maybe. I dunno.

OK, so we know Ganoo/Loonix is masterrace, but what about Windows vs Mac? Since I started using Linux I honestly feel that Mac OS X, being a Unix system, is more complete and powerful than Windows. I used to believe Macs were for people who didn't know how to use computers until I found out they have bash terminals and are Unix, something they never seem to play on in their marketing (durr "macs are for fun stuff, pc for work" - I could actually do more work on a Mac than with Windows, for which I'd need a hundred third party apps like PuTTY just to emulate the same functionality I can get on Mac or Lunix).

>/g/ hating on Unity
I don't know, /g/, I've been using Openbox all these years. Now jumping onto Unity just to try it. It's actually very usable.
Unity, being a plugin of Compiz, means that its configurability is simply immense. The possibility of keybinds and automating window management is just... mind-blowingly great. I don't see why people keep on bashing how it's 'deisigned for grandmas and failing'. Ot me it's one of the most configurable WMs out there. Just open Compiz Configuration Settings Manager (CCSM), the forest of settings approaches KDE level.
Jesus, it even has tiling built in. And Wobbly Windows. And you can pretty much configure it to have Vim keybinds. It's the best thing ever.
