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."

I have tried many versions of Linux on my Aspire One and so far the best one by far is Linux4one. Everything works perfectly, it is easy to use and very fast.

For the inquisitive, here are some links about Linux4one.
(Scroll down the page for the text in English).

It seems to be a re-master of Ubuntu (Hardy?), made specifically for the Acer Aspire One.

"to work out of the box on Acer's Aspire One Netbook. Very well configured, the distribution is perfect also for those who are less experts."

Oooh ... and another link I found:

Such a pity that the OP, Kaiwai, doesn't read OSNews, because this OSnews article talking about a Linux distribution re-master made for the AA1 might have saved Kaiwai quite a bit of unnecessary trouble, angst and eventual frustration, and it might have saved quite a bit of un-necessary negative publicity on OSNews also.

Oh, wait ...

Somehow I got a circular reference in there somewhere. I wonder how that happened?
