I've got an Acer Aspire One and am sticking with the factory-installed Linpus so far as AFAIK it's the only one where _everything_ works (I'm more interested with using the AA1 than playing). I've modified it heavily and made notes for the inevitable reinstall.

The AA1 notes are a lot longer and quite a bit more fiddly than my Slackware config notes which involve tweaking about 3 files, startx, install a few apps and enjoy a wonderful working system.

To anyone who says Slack's difficult it's a matter of persistence. When you've a bit of experience it's the easiest of them all!
