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."

please, since you run this place, make the necessary adjustments so that *every comment on your entire site* will *stop* showing up as headlines in Google News searches? All one need do is search Google News for "linux" and the results are festooned with links to *each and every single comment* on this site and your Newmobilecomputing site.

That the bulk of said comments tend to be about how awful Linux is is sheer coincidence I'm sure.
