Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"The company previously estimated that the 10.1-inch Aspire One
AOD150 would hit U.S. shelves in mid-February, but Acer is rolling
out the netbook Monday, about a week ahead of schedule.
"The new model replaces Acer's previous Aspire One offering,
which included an 8.9-inch display. Aside from the larger screen,
it also brings one other major difference: It is only available
from Acer preloaded with Microsoft's Windows XP Home operating
system. Previously, customers had the option of ordering a system
preloaded with either Windows XP Home or Linpus Linux Lite."
