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.

Why remove Linux and install XP? It seems like a hassle compared to just buying the Acer One with XP pre-installed.

It probably was. Now I bought the Win XP version because I wanted the 120GB HDD, and proceeded to load the latest development versions of Fedora and Ubuntu. Not quite the hassle, and both Linuxes seem to work reasonably well, but neither gives full use of both card slots. Haven't checked out WinXP with the slots, but I'm betting it'll just work.
