Been messing around with Windows 8 and usability is better with a mouse than a touchpad.

Probably because we are all used to mouse operation. But if you have a tablet, touch is the best choice - although e.g. a Bluetooth mouse is possible.

I have this little guy since last week and I use the touchscreen, the touchpad and the Bluetooth mouse depending on the situation - whatever is easiest.

Installed Ubuntu on the Acer Aspire One 11.6" netbook. Easiest OS install I've ever done.

I don't really like Ubuntu since they came out with this Unity UI. I am a fan of Mint Mate and Zorin. Have a look how they work.

I haven't played with Ubuntu yet. The desktop looks different than what I'm use to with Linux.
