When I bought my Acer Aspire with Linux Lite on it, the guy in PCWorld 
said that it might not connect to the internet and there was no support, 
and they were getting loads returned because nobody knew how to use it, 
so if I couldnt get it to work, I could get my money back......which 
tells me that is why Linux based computers disappeared.
