On the other hand, Asus use Linpus (what a horrible name) on their Linux
Netbooks and it's just outstanding.
I'm finding I'm borrowing my Wifes Acer Aspire One Linux Netbook more and
more to do outside computer stuff, as it's *really* user friendly, Acer
were smart with this unit.
It's small, great looking, excellent display, every app you could need,
and wifi is just too easy!
Anyone choosing XP Home over the Linux Acer Aspire One is making a *HUGE
MISTAKE OF BIBLICAL PROPORTIONS * !!!
If we wish to reduce our ignorance, there are people we will
indeed listen to. Trolls are not among those people, as trolls, more or
less by definition, *promote* ignorance.
