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.

I've found linpus to be quite usable on my aspire one, once I unlocked the xfce menu. It feels really snappy despite of having only 512MB.

My only gripe is with it's repositories, other than that I haven't had any problem so far.
Anyway if I was to replace the OS (which I'll probably do eventually) I'd rather go with debian instead of ubuntu.
