One Day Computing…almost. With a little tweaking, everything works fine and about 7-8 hours of battery life is doable.

Installed Distro: openSUSE 11.1 - 32 bit / Kernel: 126.96.36.199.0.1-pae i686 currently running KDE 4.2.2 as Windowmanager. Desktop effects working (Cube).
Setting up a dual booting system with XP home via grub was easy. Minor problems with the fixed size of certain windows not displaying fully in 1024×600 (Amarok 1.4.10 configuration e.g). Other than that, no showstoppers found. There is an EEEPc related Repository for open SuSE 11.1 here:
I'm impressed with the battery and the relative ease of installation (used a bootable USB Stick to install).
