Gateway Netbook. Great little computer. HD went south with some very bad sectors. Gateway sent me new HD and recovery disks. System disc is supposed to be bootable to start the recovery process. First one they sent doesn't boot. Replacement doesn't boot either. That sucks. How often are there 2 bad discs? So I did what any self respecting desperate geek would do.....installed Ubuntu 10.10 and it works flawlessly. If I didn't need to run a bunch of Windows software I would keep Ubuntu on the Gateway. Isn't there software for Ubuntu which runs Windows reliably? Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
