    TCAAC 21 - The Acer Aspire One

    Nick shows Scott that bigger isn't necessarily better as the Acer Aspire One goes to show...
    Watch the show.

    Is that Nick on a Linux machine?

    Also, SUBTITLES. Seriously, HEXUS.tv is a pain in the arse for viewing at work, due to lack of subs.

    Re: TCAAC 21 - The Acer Aspire One

    Tee hee, lovin' an all the stuff that's been the norm for years. All your mockery, destroyed by reality

    Want some special Aspire features that don't work (out of the box, or without config file hacking) anywhere else? Try this one: boot the laptop with a nice big SD card in the LEFT SD slot (not the right one). The Aspire One will *ADD* the space on that card to the space on the internal drive - i.e. plug in an 8 GiB SD card, and you get a 16 GiB disk.

    My housemate has one of these and you can do loads of stuff with them if your not afraid to do a bit of terminal fiddling.

    Looks like a nice little unit. Seen them in my local super market. Quite like the 120g one though.

    Yeah, i've been reading about this too, very cool.
    HOWEVER.... since this is an open source thing, surely any development by Acer has to go back into the melting pot, and every other similar device ought to be able to do the same too?
    Or do you think it's a hardware feature?

    Anyway, cool little review, i'm liking it. And liking TCAAC too.
    I'm commenting on an internet forum. Your facts hold no sway over me.

    it's a software feature, making use of something called "AuFS" (a fixed version of UnionFS) which allows a disk to be mounted in the same place as a different disk, and have the contents transparently "merged". When writing files, files are added to whichever host disk has more free space. But as far as the app is concerned, the mount point is a single disk. It's how live-CD distributions can allow you to install apps (it uses an AuFS disk stored in RAM to add files onto the file system on the CD)
