I have run several distributions with varying success on this netbook. Recently I got Centos 5.5 working fairly well with 3rd party wifi drivers, but only with WEP. No 3D desktop, no ethernet port, choppy sound, no Fn keys.

The big shocker for me was when I put the final release of RHEL 6.0 on it. Everything works out of the box. Sound is great, wifi is perfect with every encryption type, the screen is flawless through installation and 3D desktop works well. The blue Fn keys even work. For a server-oriented distribution, I couldn't be happier.
