Acer Aspire One AA1
A while back my wife and I purchased AA1's the 160gig HD Windows versions. My wife is quite happy with her AA1 XP netbook but I am a Linux guy so I started a quest to find a distro that would perform well on this small Atom based netbook. After installs of Ubuntu, Mandriva, Fedora 10, and a host of others I was pretty frustrated. Most of the disros worked, more or less. Wireless seemed to be the biggest problem along with the card reader. I could tell you how long I wandered around the net looking for the Holy Grail. Many hours including repeated visit apireoneusers.com. But it was a Google Alert I setup on my Gmail that gave me the best solution yet. It's called Eeebuntu Netbook Remix you can find it here It is a very nice looking setup as you can see.
