Microsoft "'We have said think it over. Think twice', Wang is quoted as saying, 'It will create a huge negative impact for the ecosystem and other brands may take a negative reaction. It is not something you are good at so please think twice.' Wang went on to suggest that if Microsoft moves ahead with its tablet plans, the Taiwan-based Acer might replace the software giant as a partner. 'If Microsoft is going to do hardware business, what should we do? Should we still rely on Microsoft, or should we find other alternatives?', he is quoted as saying." Or, you could just build stuff that doesn't suck. Just a suggestion, Acer.

Acer have a "Aspire" Netbook with MeeGo interface, and a Distro from hell that sucks hard...

The problem isn't just Linux. The vendors choose the worst distro on the world every time they sell a product without a Windows OEM Key.

My Aspire came with Linpus Linux and it had no GUI. In the box there was a little manual explaining that "nothing worked in Linux" and attached to it a CD containing WinXP drivers.

So fu** you, Acer.
