Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu To supplement storage space with the initial purchase of the Aspire One (8 GB SSD version), I bought a 16 GB Transcend TS16GBSDHC6 card that integrates nicely into the left card slot. The pre-installed Linux Linpus just wasn't what I needed since I use many networking tools at work and at home. I initially ran Ubuntu 8.041 with the /home partition on the 16 GB SDHC card. I discovered Eeebuntu while searching for information on how to boot and run Linux off a SDHC card. The goal was of multi-boot installations of Ubuntu, with one install specifically loaded with the tools I use at work. The Acer Aspire One BIOS does not 'see' the card, so you can't boot from it using the [F12] startup key (More on the SDHC boot up further in this article).

This is why people put up with windows or buy a Mac!


Hoops, more Hoops, and Hooray for mostly working? Sorry, I like the *idea* of linux, and it is a bit of a hobby, but this is crazy for a machine that ships with a linux distro already installed. How hard can it be to transfer the drivers, etc to other interested distro makers?

Anyways, nuff said.
