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."

You can be a troll on your own site. I'm just pointing out the obvious, there is no way to post something like this and not expect the kind of responses that come along with it. I'm pretty sure that Thom is intelligent and knows this. So I think he posts flamebait and does it on purpose. Because look any post that is trollish enough is going to get 100+ comments and lots of pageviews. That's just how it works. This is how the site makes money. It can't make money without all the drama.

PS: I don't like being grammar nazi, but your grammar and punctuation is almost to the point of ridiculousness. Please lay off the comma key on your keyboard.
