Re: Switch from Eeebuntu?
I have the same model of EeePC as you, and I've only ever run standard Ubuntu on it.
Currently I'm running 10.04. Yes, there are one or two minor things, such as some function keys (not all of them) not working and a tweak that I have to add to Grub to deal with a graphics problem. I haven't tested the microphone because I never use it, so can't comment on that. Nor have I used wireless for any length of time, either.
Ultimately, you need to test it for yourself. If you have a spare 4GB SD card, you can put it in the card slot and install to that. It will be a bit slow, but it should still give you an idea if it's going to work well enough for you. Once you are happy with that, you can install to the main drive.
To install, use unetbootin to create a bootable USB stick from the .iso image, and boot from that.
Please, people, remember to BACKUP before you install that new system. Same if you're upgrading.
