This LJ entry is brought to you by my shiny, cute, sapphire, Acer Aspire One netbook. Running Linux that looks and works a lot like Windows XP. So far it rocks:
- It liked my USB mouse without so much as a "I've found a new device" popup. Plugged it in, it worked.
- It liked my printer straight away.
- It likes my monitor, which is just as well, the screen really is tiny.
- I'm sure it'd like a USB keyboard as well, if I had one. I'm not conviced it will like the M$ wireless keyboard dongle.
- It knows all the right account settings for both gmail and BT internet mail. How sweet is that?
- Now all I need to do is persuade my wireless network to communicate with it. Hmm. Need to check my security settings. [Edit: Ahh, got it, now connected wirelessly with WPA2 Mixed. I can spod from bed. Well, I could if I had a bed better than the inflatable mattress that I now have to sleep on for the next few days.
- [Edit 2] Really doesn't like my backup drive: "Unknown file system ntfs". That'll teach me to let Windows format the thing.

Milesh and Dave are playing with their balls. Milesh is playing with Dave's and Dave is playing with Milesh's. Dave's is bigger and it has flashing lights.
