I just tried it on an Aspire One 110, booted off an USB stick. I certainly haven't seen such a dumbed down interface for a while. I guess it's OK for kids, teens or grandmas, but for the average user, it's just too much hand-holding. Not to mention that even though it connected via WiFi, after two minutes the connection just gave up and I couldn't even ping the router.
It took me about 3 minutes to figure out how to turn the darn thing off. The only way was the power button, since I couldn't even find a terminal to type shutdown into.
