Question Acer Aspire one help

Hi, i've seen some aspire ones witch start up to a screen that just shows 12 apps others start up like a normal windows XP and show the 'start' button at the bottom left and have the normal XP features

I'm going to buy one that has XP which aspire models have these so i dont end up having a crappy 12 apps start up screen

i hope this isnt complicated lol thx

You must be talking about the Acer that comes loaded with Linux? That model works just great! But, if your used to XP, then buy the model with it loaded. Just look at the description in store, or online and get the one with XP...which does cost more BTW.

They just got linux instead of XP. It is cheaper because Linux is free so you don't have to pay for the license for Windows.
