I installed F10 from the Live CD on my eeePC 1000 about a month ago and
nearly everything worked out of the box except suspend/resume (Wifi
wouldn't come back) and the Bluetooth mouse (worked with minor
tweaking).

A week or so ago I upgraded to Rawhide using preupgrade and now
*everything* works out of the box, even the special function keys
(speaker volume, screen brightness etc, Wifi off/on etc.). I'm really
impressed with this.

For now I don't see why anyone would need a special Fedora spin for
these machines.
