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."

Well I don't think Thom is anti-Linux, he is just pro-drama. That's what I meant by professional troll, his job is attract users to this site and I think he has found that the best way to do so is by trolling and posting flamebait. You'll notice how these kind of news posts get the most comments. These kind of news posts also get posted on other sites. Thom is paid by OSNews and this OSNews primarily makes money from page views which seems to be driven by endless flame wars and a healthy dose of trolling. That's just the truth of the matter.
