Why would installing a different OS on a general purpose computer void the warranty?

I think you mixed up the funds here. Norfund isn't the wealth fund. The wealth fund is called "Government Pension Fund Global" or just "The Oil Fund".
Norfund is an investment fund that is created to help improve development countries, and is worth around 25B NOK or roughly 2.5B USD, which is a lot, but absolutely tiny compared to the actual wealth fund.
They received orders for 54 aircraft last year, and delivered 380. Most of the delivered aircraft were probably put in order in 2018 or maybe even 2017, depending on the lead time for a new aircraft.
Some of the 54 aircraft ordered in 2019 are probably for delivery in 2020 and beyond.
It would not surprise me if the time from order to delivery of a 737 is more than a year.
Edit: But I am guessing if you want one delivered in 2020, or when (if?) they are allowed to fly again, you can have one delivered *really* quickly.
Also engineers at Boeing called Lion Air pilots "idiots" because they felt they needed simulator time to fly the 737 Max safely.
It's a shame two planes needed to crash to prove the Lion Air pilots right.
"The Offering Materials also emphasised DXC's ability to retain "highly motivated people with the skills necessary to serve their customers"."
Well, the people working for DXC probably has the skills necessary, but after being treated like that, I seriously doubt they will be highly motivated for long
How many companies *actually* have wildly fluctuating server needs?
Is it really cheaper to rent space with someone else if you have a fairly steady need and can purchase your own capacity that covers your own needs + maybe a slight buffer?
You still need to pay for the same capacity with the other company, plus their profit margin.
The problem usually isn't with ISP's blocking traffic from competitors, but rather that they say "pay us extra for your traffic or we will throttle your traffic to 20KB/s". When you're a small startup, that becomes a major problem.
Telling everyone to "just use Amazon and you will be fine" is not a solution.
He was in the UK when he commited the crime, so the act was commited in the UK.
If I remember correctly, it is a crime punishable by prison time to dishonor the king of the Philipines. Would you want to be extradited there and face prison time if you ever wrote something negative about him, even if you had never been there?
How is the quality of their computers these days? They started out by being good and cheap, so I bought a few of their laptops until the quality suddenly tanked and your best bet was that it lasted until the day after the warranty expired. After that I went mostly with Asus and Lenovo and have been mostly happy with their quality.
So is Acer good enough these days to give them another chance?
Maybe make bomb detectors? I'm sure the MOD is interested in that.
