Has anyone had success loading and running a Linux distro on an Acer Aspire 1360?
I bought the Aspire in 2004, running XP. Now that XP is dead I would like to use the laptop with Linux. Unfortunately I cannot get the Ubuntu CD to load. Called Acer and was told Linux does not work on that model (???). They did not tell me why!!
