The Linux version of the Acer Aspire One mini-laptop comes with a customized version of Linpus Linux Lite, a Linux distro designed to be easy to use on a computer with a small scren. Like the Easy Mode version of Xandros Linux that Asus installs on Eee PCs, Linpus Linux Lite presents you with a series of large icons for the programs you use most frequently. If you don’t like it, you can always wipe the operating system clean and replace it with Ubuntu, Windows, or another operating system of your choice. Or you can just gently tweak the program launcher interface to make it a bit easier to use.
Register Hardware has a tutorial for modifying the Acer Aspire One Linux user interface. You can change the desktop background, rearrange program icons, or change their labels, among other things. Make sure to backup your settings before getting started, or you may find yourself with a rather awkward and borderline unusable system if something goes wrong. But if you follow the step by step instructions there shouldn’t be too much to worry about.
