Hardware, Embedded Systems To add to the amounting anecdotes of late, another Acer Aspire One review appears. Not to be confused with Thom's or Eugenia's, which were different models, this review concentrates on the ZG5 version of the Acer Aspire One and how well Windows XP, Windows 7, Ubuntu 8.10, and Moblin 2 run on it, particularly in the everyday-netbooker's sense of functionality with word processing and Internet applications. Read on to get the full scoop on the One and these selected systems.

And then he gives it a 7/10. What's that about? I would personally give this user experience a 3/10, at most.

Clearly, there is a tendency on the part of the reviewer to be a bit more "lenient" with Linux. This is unacceptable. No one in their right mind would want to go through that ordeal and at the end think "Yeah, this is pretty good, I'd give this a 7/10".


Come on now, you should know by now that to criticize Ubuntu in any way shape or form on any public forum (even when deserved) is to incur the wrath of the *buntu fanboys full force. I should know.

You're absolutely correct.

Will the Ubuntu gods accept a sacrificial OS X disc as an apology for my insolence? :-(
