ok i got an aspire one, its a teeny tiney netbook about half the size of a small laptop. this in itself is a wonderfull new gadget to write on and to brows the net, about the only fault i can find with it is the horible small touchpad. be advised if your tempted to get one, get a usb mouse as well.
the one thing that scared me shitless was the fact that it, along with most netbooks came pre installed with a linux os called limpus. I didnt like the idea, as most part time computer users do, of leaving the comfortable settings of windows, i already found mack os to be scary and hard to get a handle on, so i wasnt looking foward to dealing with an alien os.
and yes its been a good experience for me. well i must admit i was inspred on by the fact that linux and all its programs are absolutly free! and so im getting a basic handle on the program and im loving it.
just since i havent posted a pic in a while here one of me at the bear tent (or "bearia") at brighton pride this year and why was i so smug you ask, i was looking up my friends ians kilt of coarse as he was taking the picture
