eLive on the Acer Aspire Revo
January 24, 2010 03:06AM
A few weeks ago I went to the local BestBuy store to look at the Acer Aspire Revo (Intel Atom w/ Nvidia ION chipset). I was thinking about buying one but wanted to make sure it would run eLive. I had a flash drive with me with eLive 1.9.51 installed on it. I asked the sales rep about the computer and he said, "Oh, that's just a cheap, low-powered computer that's only good for browsing the web". When he walked away I plugged my flash drive into it, rebooted and it came right up into eLive. I enabled ecomorph and played around with the settings a little.

A few minutes later the sales rep walks by and sees a half dozen videos running in wobbly, transparent windows, a mac-like dock, etc. He almost fainted... "Wow! What the heck is that?" he asked. My reply? "Oh, just a cheap computer that's not good for anything other than browsing the web...". I removed my flash drive, rebooted the computer into Windows XP, and bought one. I've got it hooked up to my 50" Samsung HD plasma in the living room with a wireless keyboard.

Here's the URL for the wallpaper I'm using:


Everyone that sees eLive on my computer falls in love with it... Great Job!
