I have to admit, it isnt that bad, at the beginning, when I bought it it 
had Linux Lite on, there, and we put Ubuntu on it, it did have a few 
problems then, and somebody helped put the Netbook version on, and that 
seemed to help, but for some reason, we are back to the normal version. 
That is something I am not sure how it happened. Normally I can connect 
almost immediately to any network, it finds it, I add the passwords it 
works. But it has done this twice now after an update. For the level of 
experience I have, its a nifty little netbook. If I was more experienced 
in Linux, I think I would pay more money for a better one.
