Re: ASUS and Xubuntu:

I installed Xubuntu on two variants of their old "netbooks" with no problems. They worked great even tho they maxed-out at 2 GB of ram. I even managed to dual boot as well as replace the HD with an SSD in the second one, which took a bit of prying and screwing around.

Excuse the top-post. Interspersing comments doesn't work well on this droid.
