    Hi everyone,
    I've had an EeePC 900 for a while now and was searching high and low for
    a distro that would work properly and I came across Eeebuntu. I was using Eeebuntu 1.0 for months
    and just recently Eeebuntu 2.0 based on Intrepid Ibex was released and I installed that.
    Windows didn't even get booted once on my Eee.
    I was just wondering if anyone here has an Eee and if they do, do you use Eeebuntu?

    I'm also happy to announce that I haven't run windows on my other laptop for a long time now and Instead, I am running PCLinuxOS 2007 spring.

    My younger brother has an EeePC, but I think he's running Xfce on there.

    [ot]My only laptop now's a MacBook 2.1, which runs fine but is frankly in horrible shape physically. :O That was a bad model with quite a few design flaws.[/ot]

    Actually, from what i've been reading, almost every major distro supports netbooks now, Mandriva 2009 has really good support and functionality for netbooks, and they are making a netbook specific version.

    Yeah that's true, but none I've come across work as well as Eeebuntu, at least for my Eee anyway. I've lost my interest in Mandriva lately plus the new CEO has kicked up a stink with alot of people plus the sacking of Adam Williamson has left a foul taste in the back of my throat.
    Perhaps I'll give it a whirl but we'll see.
