Linspire In the midst of the busy semester here at school, my fiancee's laptop, running Windows XP SP2, picked up some friends - adware, trojans, etc. It was a pretty nasty sight. I worked on it for at least two hours every couple of days, wiping it clean, doing my best to lock it down, and so on. Avast! and Ad-Aware had their limits it seemed, for only a day or so after I cleaned it, pop-ups and weird stuff would show up again. She was getting sick of it. I was getting sick of cleaning it, so I suggested, offhand, installing a different operating system that is a bit more impervious to those nasties. To my surprise, she agreed.

Why not a Korean/Asian based distro?

My own experience with korean-friendly distros are admittedly very limited, but I share your frustration to some extent; sometimes getting just a Swedish keyboard to work correctly in Linux can be a pain (yes xorg bugs I am looking at you!). I assume a "local" korean or asian distro would provide among the best localization support. So did you try or has anyone else here tried Haansoft Linux?

It seems to be a commercial distro, but it also seems that the reviewer is not afraid to spend some money on a commercial OS solution anyways. Could perhaps have saved him the cost of new hardware, I dunno.
