They say Windows crashes constantly. They say CTRL+ALT+DEL will become your best friend. Then it becomes your worst enemy when you realize that, contrary to popular belief, it doesn't do all that much to fix the problem. If anything at all.
They say Apple and its Mac limits your freedom. Although it doesn't crash as much, it tells you what you can and cannot install. It tells you what you can and cannot do. And then it crashes anyway.
Welcome to Linux Xandros on the Asus eee 900. It's a wonderful blend of Windows and the Mac. It does crash constantly, it does tell you what you can and cannot install (which has been everything the past year), and it seems to have been created simply to annoy the crap out of me.
It doesn't even have the possibility of running the bloody CD that came with it, which would enable me to reset it to its original miserable state of inadequacy.
Say what you want about Windows... having been around the block a couple times I have to say my future laptop will be neither a Mac nor running Linux. Interpret that any which way you want.
If you've got any better suggestions, please do leave a comment.
