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 hated it until a graphical menu system came out called Geoworks. Now the computer was easy to use.


And when "Windows" was released, everything was harder to use again. :-)

Yes, Windows was a joke compared to Geoworks. And Windows still is a joke compared to that 20 year old Geoworks.:-) Sad,but true.
