Hardware, Embedded Systems To add to the amounting anecdotes of late, another Acer Aspire One review appears. Not to be confused with Thom's or Eugenia's, which were different models, this review concentrates on the ZG5 version of the Acer Aspire One and how well Windows XP, Windows 7, Ubuntu 8.10, and Moblin 2 run on it, particularly in the everyday-netbooker's sense of functionality with word processing and Internet applications. Read on to get the full scoop on the One and these selected systems.

Interesting you give Ubuntu less marks than Windows 7 even though Windows 7 runs slower. Surely in a netbook start-up speed and access to programmes are preferable, and maybe you're a bit biased as your 'must have apps' are Windows only?


Ubuntu left too much not functioning after install. Windows 7, which is still beta, had a better experience out of the box then Ubuntu 8.10, that's why it scored better.

At least that's what I took away from the article.
