Subject: EeePC - to Fedora or not?
 
I recently acquired an Asus EeePC-1000
(the Linux version with a 40GB SSD).
I don't really like the Linux system running on the machine,
and am thinking about installing Fedora instead or in addition.

What actually are the advantages of Fedora in this case?
Also, will I have any problems with WiFi,
which works very well in the current system?

Not too long ago I installed F9 on an eee PC 9. This was an attempted fix
after a friend's son botched an attempted "upgrade" horribly. (I think that I
have since then figured out that he accepted a BIOS upgrade from ASUS'
Xandros repository while trying to update Open Office). Anyway, wifi works
fine on the machine, but there are little KDE 4 oddities. I think that I'll
try F10 for him and see if I can get everything to work. My procedure for
installation can be found in the following thread
