Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu The Linux version of the Acer Aspire One netbook comes with a customised version of the Linpus distribution pre-installed, which might not be to everyone's fancy. Linux4one, a modified Ubuntu, could be a good alternative. Linux4One is optimized for the Aspire One; it includes drivers for the One, and comes with an interface derived from the Netbook Remix version.

It would be nice if there was a bit more info. How much slower then Linplus is it? Does it work properly with a SSD drive? I know the other link says devices work, but I have seen too many reviews that say "everything works...but the webcam."

Eventually I'll have to buy one of these things so I can play with it, but for my portable needs I like a bigger screen. And my wife wont let me touch hers to play with. She is quite happy with Linplus for the time being.

Just take her by surprise, that often works; if she doesn't loosen up a bit try massive amounts of flowers, or foot massages; or make sure there's a local power-down. :-)

Ahh.. you know where it starts but not where it ends.. Would probably be cheaper and less resource-consuming just to buy another one ;)
