Windows A few weeks ago, I reviewed the Acer Aspire One notebook, the variant which came with an Acer-modified version of Linpus Linux. This version was locked-down and difficult to modify, so not too long after I installed Ubuntu, and was reasonably pleased - despite the amount of tweaking it took to get it working. A few days ago, however, I realised Linux wouldn't be ideal for me on my netbook. Due to pragmatic reasons, I'm now running Windows XP.

Are you serious? OSnews == a story on how to install XP on a generic x86 system that just doesn't happen to have a cd-rom?

Are you kidding me?

Thom, if you don't have interesting news to post, don't go out and write silly little things like this. You can buy XP versions of the Acer right out of the store.

I agree. Linux > Windows. Post something about Asterisk vs FreeSWITCH instead, that's a lot more interesting than this.
