    What OS are you running on Asus Eee ?

    How many ubunters are using ASUS Eee and what OS are your running?

    Personally, I have just ordered my Eee and going to install eeeXubuntu http://wiki.eeeuser.com/ubuntu:eeexubuntu:home dual boot with custom xandros (comes with asus).

    i thought ASUS Eee sold 350,000 and going to sell 1.4 million till end of this year. Looks like not famous among our community folks.

    Re: What OS are you running on Asus Eee ?

    Im running the full desktop version of the default Xandros which is included although i have to say i'm not a lover of it. I was looking at Xubuntu to install on it or maybe Ubuntu. I just saw Fluxbuntu which im going to look into more

    How well does Xubuntu andUbuntu run?

    Re: What OS are you running on Asus Eee ?

    The default Debian Etch is fine for me. I added a couple files to make the 'Full Desktop' mode (KDE) work, but I mostly use IceWM with a couple of small configuration changes.

    I don't see the point in changing from Debian to Ubuntu, since it is the same thing with a different name - no diff really. When using this little toy, applications are usually maximized, so the 'desktop' is mostly invisible anyway.

    My vote goes toward Edgy...outdated, but still my old standby.

    I would have agreed with you 3 months ago but since gutsy came out, i have changed my perception. Gutsy detects most hardware so I would vote for that but I am bit unsure whether gutsy runs well on Eee or should I stick to customised eeexubuntu as i am getting my lil eee beast today.
