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.

After a brief flirt with Fedora 10 (which mostly worked OK but I had problems with WiFi), I've switched to OpenSuse 11.1 and everything works. It's a standard install from the DVD image. It's quick enough for KDE4's 3D desktop effects. WiFi and Ethernet work fine and suspend and hibernate both work. I haven't tried to install webcam drivers as I'm not interested in using it.

I couldn't be more satisfied with it all.

I have the same experience, openSuSE 11.0 on my Acer One 150b (1,5GB RAM-120GB HDD), it had XP on it but the first thing I did , before windows defragments the HDD, I split the HDD in two and put SuSE on it in dual boot mode.
