Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu To supplement storage space with the initial purchase of the Aspire One (8 GB SSD version), I bought a 16 GB Transcend TS16GBSDHC6 card that integrates nicely into the left card slot. The pre-installed Linux Linpus just wasn't what I needed since I use many networking tools at work and at home. I initially ran Ubuntu 8.041 with the /home partition on the 16 GB SDHC card. I discovered Eeebuntu while searching for information on how to boot and run Linux off a SDHC card. The goal was of multi-boot installations of Ubuntu, with one install specifically loaded with the tools I use at work. The Acer Aspire One BIOS does not 'see' the card, so you can't boot from it using the [F12] startup key (More on the SDHC boot up further in this article).

I really liked it, although I own an EeePC, really liked the tweaking and the ideas, and the way the article was written. Might be of future use.
A bit off-topic, but I feel the quality of OSnews' articles got better with the whole 'read more' thing, and commentaries by contributors and editors. I started enjoying OSnews again in a way I haven't in a long time. My congrats!

Sorry for my english, not a native. ;)
