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.

Incompatible hardware

However, after hours of searching for "Acer Aspire One wireless drivers," I found a treasure trove of information on the first hit for the One's camera drivers. This page on the Ubuntu website helps One users immensely. However, my wired connection suddenly doesn't work on Ubuntu and I don't want to spend any more valuable time trying to work it.

This makes me know that this is not the optimal hardware on which to run gnu/linux on. Sure, it can be supported by so and so distro, but having something that already is supported in the kernel is way better.
