Thanks to Adam’s custom kernel grabbed from http://ping.fm/gllx0 I’m now running Xubuntu on my Eee PC. Boom Xfce4! Actually glad that I went for the non solid state HDD model too. I’ve kept the machine in a dual OS boot (Windows/Linux) for the moment, mainly to keep the work and random internetting modes (a bit) separate.
