This is not an advert, merely an observation.

I was very much impressed with Ubuntu Netbook Remix 9.04 on my 701.
What I liked (onced I turned off all the jazzy stuff I don't need) was
that it was reasonably easy to slim the packages down without taking
out huge portions of the things I wanted. I think that for the stuff I
needed on this machine (web,terminal,movies) there were less
cross-dependencies in the Debian/Ubuntu packages and that made it
easier to pick apart. It was by no means an easy install though.

That said, I look forward to trying F11 on it!
