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."

So the best you can do is provide me with a link to an obscure linux distribution from Italy which I would never have known about had you not provided me a link to it.

The opportunity for 'Linux' to make its way onto my Netbook was last week, not today. Where were you and your distribution one week ago when I was trying to get Linux working? where was this distribution? if it is so damn useful then it should be appearing when I put acer aspire one linux distribution in google.
