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."

You never,I'll repeat NEVER stated I was comparing Linux to an OEM installation of Windows XP I did from a CD.

Except he.............wasn't. Maybe if a Linux distribution had what I described above, a sane way of developing and installing software, then we might get an OEM distribution CD for a system.

You didn't read the article and haven't read any of the comments here.
