The only thing to remember is if you want to use the webcam you have to first enable it in the Eee's BIOS, then install Cheese from Synaptic. Once that's installed, go into the Cheese preferences and set the camera to 320x240 resolution or it won't work. Works great now.
For me, this is definitely how you want to see Ubuntu on the Eee. No fuss, just a simple install easily configured. Highly recommended.
