comment Do hard drives really have open cases now?
@Vality I think that comment could very well be turned into an answer.

Why? What would be the benefit? Or rather, what benefit do you seek by doing so?

comment Does end-user stress testing hardware serve a purpose?
@fixer1234 That doesn't really answer my question though. Memtest86+ stresses RAM and to a minor extent the CPU. The computer just sitting at full throttle stresses the CPU cooling (try booting into firmware setup and watch the CPU temperature rise). SMART conveyance tests stresses the hard disk. And so on. I'm asking what stress testing beyond that adds, if anything. Also as pointed out by sawdust QA testing should already take care of most failures not related to shipping.

comment Does end-user stress testing hardware serve a purpose?
@fixer1234 How does deliberate "stress testing" do more to detect those errors than booting to the Windows desktop (or even BIOS/UEFI setup) and then just letting the system sit there for several days? Or running Memtest86+, SMART conveyance tests, etc.?

comment Does end-user stress testing hardware serve a purpose?
@sawdust I felt that was covered by my example mentions, but have edited to make it clear as well that I meant stress testing by the end user.

comment Renamed root in /etc/passwd and now sudo does not work
sputnick does mention that possibility (perhaps a grace period edit), so this answer doesn't really make a lot of sense...

comment Changing language keyboard layout via XML
Hi RafaelBarriola. Super User, and Stack Exchange in general, works best when questions are explicit and specific about what the asker wants to know. I recommend that you edit this question to add a specific question, so that we are not forced to guess (which usually ends poorly). For the moment your question appears to be attracting close votes as "unclear what you are asking", almost certainly for this exact reason. It might also be a good idea to include the command for how this XML file is intended to be used; I don't know, but it might make a difference, and it won't hurt.
