-The Acer Aspire One mini-laptop uses a taiwanese ​Linux distribution called //Linpus Linux// ([[http://​www.linpus.com]] is often down, check [[http://​en.wikipedia.org/​wiki/​Linpus_Linux|wikipedia]] for some info). The UI, though customized, is based on Xfce. For a little bit of an introduction to the device, have a look at [[http://​blog.xfce.org/?​p=184|Jasper'​s blog post]].+The Acer Aspire One mini-laptop uses a Taiwanese ​Linux distribution called //Linpus Linux// ([[http://​www.linpus.com]] is often down, check [[http://​en.wikipedia.org/​wiki/​Linpus_Linux|wikipedia]] for some info).

 +Notes to the Xfce developers:
 +  * The xfdesktop2 program is in a [[ftp://​Guest@csdftp.acer.com.tw/​Aspire_One_Linpus_Linux/​Aspire_One_Srpms/​xfdesktop-acer-lp-1526.no_spot.mcs_patched.src.rpm|"​source"​ RPM]]. However, I can't seem to find the actual source code for the binary. ​ Running ''​xfdesktop2 --version''​ on the Aspire One indicates that it is based off of xfdesktop.
 +  * Thunar and it's modifications are missing completely
 +If the sources for these modifications cannot be found, then this sounds like a GPL violation.
 +
 +Notes to the kernel or alsa developers:
 +   ​*alsa-driver and modifications to the sound/​pci/​hda/​* ​ are missing completely. There is /​lib/​modules/​2.6.23.9lw/​kernel/​sound/​fmalib.ko module, which handle digital microphone input and do a local dynamics echo canceliation,​ and which sources are completely absent too. If you try to build sound drivers from kernel sources, then there is no sound on build-in dynamics. Only external jack is supported by this drivers. fmalib.ko is ForteMedia sound library and have following text inside binary: ForteMedia SAM-Soft loaded, SAMSoft library init, SAMSoft library free. This sounds like a GPL violation too.
