My family has two Acer Aspire One D250-1026 netbooks and they both suck. The LCD screen on one is broken, the other one has a faulty ethernet card. They both hold ~20% of their original charge.

I do not recommend an Acer Aspire One, based on my terrible experiences.

In my opinion the older AAOs are better than the newer ones. What's funny about this one that I'm typing on is that it was one of the original ones that came with Linux preinstalled. The only issue is that it came with Linpus, a crippleware distro, so I just installed Ubuntu on it. It also survived a very extreme shock recently -- a whole glass of water spilled on it -- which I told you guys about already.

It's an AOA110-1545.

My Acer Aspire One AOA150 has been taking a licking and keeps on ticking, since Feb. '09, no problems running Mandriva 2010.1

That doesn't look that bad Kenny. Except for the cluttered Desktop. I hate those. But, to each his own. Haha.

Yeah, same for me, I have exactly zero icons on my desktops.

Actually, those are (mostly) all screenshots that I saved to my Desktop folder. I always save them there before I upload them.

I have a special little geekie-screenies directory for screenshots in /home/mrcode/Pictures, so you never see them on the desktop.

The only icons I have on my desktop are a few shortcuts to common places (e.g. my home dir, /, the "trash", whatever removable drives/media are currently mounted), and Firefox.

I have to also admit: Some of those icons were also in case some element of my desktop (e.g. Compiz, Unity, GNOME Panel, Xfce Panel) crashed.

They were links to Compiz, GNOME Panel, Xfce Panel, etc.

Hmm.. I have a script that calls "import -screen root ~/Pictures/screenshots/$(date +%s).png" so every screenshot will be in the right place.

Windows Vista SP2 using the default theme which looks nice IMO. Hahahaha. My name is blotched out. That's why that big black "SPLOOSH" is there.
