If you have a cd from xp and a cd drive, why not.

How is linux hard to operate? What are things you can't do using linux, can you give examples?

Here is a forum for the Acer Aspire:

http://www.aspireoneuser.com/forum/v....php?f=5&t=458

It is using Linpus Linux which is based on Fedora. They give some information there on how to use it.

When the Aspire One first appeared (Linux version). I found it extremely easy to operate---If I had not known what to look for, I would not have known it was running Linux.

As others have stated, tell us the specific issues.
