Hardware, Embedded Systems Long-time OSNews reader Kaiwai has written down his experiences with his Acer Aspire One, Linux, and Windows. He concludes: "After a hectic few weeks trying to get Linux to work, I am back to square one again - a netbook running Windows XP SP3 as it was provided by Acer when I purchased it. I gave three different distributions a chance to prove themselves. I expected all three distributions to wipe the floor with Windows XP - after all, these are the latest and greatest distributions the Linux world have to offer. There has been at least 7 years since the release of Windows XP for Linux to catch up to Windows XP and from my experience with Linux on this said device - it has failed to step up to the plate when it was needed."

No, I’m not the one who chose the article, I just replied to it; the same as you. We’re all entitled to our opinions—as wrong or as right as both may be.

Yes anybody IS entitled to his own opinion, funny enough the blog owner seems not to support this point of view. Obviously the comments are scaring him witless so he doesn't post any of them :-) MS culture I guess.
