Installed Fedora 13 Desktop Edition (GNOME) 64bit on my Asus Eee PC Seashell 1001PX. Everything working like a charm out of the box. GURB is dual booting Fedora as well as Windows 7. Fedora takes more time to book than windows 7 but after login, Windows 7 takes hell lot of time to be usable . Probably for startup of anti virus and other things. So power-on to Use time is almost same for both the OSs .
No issue with Ethernet , Display , Wi-fi, Sound-card & Power management configuration . Fedora automatically detected everything. I am delighted
Tried Ubuntu 10.04 netbook Remix i386 on my Asus Eee PC Seashell 1001PX. I have installed it on a USB drive and used that USB drive to bootup the netbook. Wi-fi apater was not detected and I have not tried any further manual config as I did not have sufficient space on the UBS key for persistent change. All other hardware worked fine. The no show of Wi-Fi killed my interest to install Ubuntu on hard disk as of now .
