Personally, I run Peppermint OS (for too many reasons to list here) on all of my portables (bootable USB stick / Netbook / Laptop).

Peppermint OS is a Lubuntu fork.
Don't let all the Cloud tweaks put you off (if you're not into Cloud computing). It'll operate like any other conventional distro, if you wish.
Put another way, Peppermint OS doesn't force you onto the cloud, like Google Chrome OS. But, it IS available (pre-programmed). It's your choice, to use the Cloud computing tweaks, or not. And, the tweaks don't get in your way, if you decide NOT to use them...
