I upgraded the OS on the Archos after the previous error and so far at least it seems to be hanging in there. So far this thing has been less reliable than Windows which is saying something. Just have to see how it goes now.
After it died last night my wife even suggested I drive the car over it. Whats really worrying is that she was serious too, that’s how bad (and frustrating) this thing is. When it works it’s great but it’s a matter of ‘when’ it works!
I’d hate to be someone who knows nothing about computers with this thing though. You’d think a piece of ‘consumer’ electronics would be more user friendly but all I can say from my experience is that if you’re not some sort of computer geek (I am, sad to say) then you’d have no chance with this thing.
