Hardware, Embedded Systems Long-time OSNews reader Kaiwai has written down his experiences with his Acer Aspire One, Linux, and Windows. He concludes: "After a hectic few weeks trying to get Linux to work, I am back to square one again - a netbook running Windows XP SP3 as it was provided by Acer when I purchased it. I gave three different distributions a chance to prove themselves. I expected all three distributions to wipe the floor with Windows XP - after all, these are the latest and greatest distributions the Linux world have to offer. There has been at least 7 years since the release of Windows XP for Linux to catch up to Windows XP and from my experience with Linux on this said device - it has failed to step up to the plate when it was needed."

Next time you want to good example of bad polish look at Vista. I mean Windows never put millions of users at risk over the last 7 years, where do I start?

I find is incredible you can look at Windows past and say what you say. Where is good usability when your fighting off virus's, spyware and bad drivers. Thats right bad drivers, Microsoft claim that they are the reason for stability issues from vendors. It's part of their platform not a excuse.
