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."

There's a wonderful rule: if You have nothing I want to hear - keep silence


There. Fixed that for you.

Did you even read his blog? At all? Past the FIRST FEW PARAGRAPHS? He wanted something that works, without pissfarting around for "1/2 hour trying to work out why dhcdbd was failing to load". Doesn't that sound to you like someone who has more than just "only heard of" Linux?
