I suppose inherent is the assumption that the problems don't happen with
Windows and that they are always the Linux software.

My experience with my Acer Aspire One was decidedly different.

It came with Windows. My USB key and hard drive wouldn't work in Windows
but did work with Linux. After I upgraded the BIOS they also worked with
Windows.

My USB SD card reader doesn't work in Windows so I have to plug into my
Linux computer to get pictures off the card and transfer them to
Windows.

What the author doesn't say is that he has learned to put up with
Windows problems and writes as if those problems are unique to Linux.
They are not.
