Hardware, Embedded Systems "Me and Bobby Powers have spent a few hours smoothing out the process of getting fully-featured Linux desktops to boot on the XO laptop. On the whole, OLPC developers have been pretty good at getting code upstream, so only a few fixups are needed to get things operational on the XO." On a slightly (stretching it here) related note, here is a detailed guide on installing and optimising Ubuntu on the Acer Aspire One that we reviewed last week. I replaced the default Linpus installation with Ubuntu using this guide, and I must say that I am quite pleased.

I thought you said you would stick to the Linpus installation? I'm surprised at how quick you changed your mind...


I said I was sticking to Linux, not Linpus per se ;) .

And yes, there's a restore CD. You boot your normal desktop from that CD, and then it will automatically install itself to an USB stick - with which you can boot the One and restore everything.
