Linux MeeGo is a Linux-based operating system designed by Intel and Nokia for netbooks and smart phones. Installing MeeGo on an Eee PC 1000 netbook is quick slick and easy. I found the user interface to be colourful and stylish with many quirky animations. MeeGo's features are easy to discover and it is fast and responsive.

...and KDE3 is dead.

I know it was forked, but they have to maintain Qt3, KDElibs(3), and all the applications.

KDE4 isn't that heavy, really, and it's speeding up gradually.

While I personally don't use it (I'm a StumpWM user who lives in Emacs and the zsh), I think that KDE4 is an amazing achievement.

Plasma also has a full netbook interface ready. Plasma is the closest thing free software has to the iOS api.(resolution independent, can fit in a variety of shapes/positions etc.)
The 4.0 release was a disaster, and it wasn't until 4.3 that I was willing to recommend it to anyone.(and my hatred of GNOME left me not recommending Linux for a while).
