So how's it going?
How's it going with Bodhi? We've been playing since 1.0, been serious since 1.1 - seems to work surprisingly well, c/w other E17 distros. I'm a fan of E17 but usually ended up wiping them after hitting stability problems.
Bodhi 1.1.0 was significantly more stable than Ubuntu Natty on our hardware over several months testing.
Bodhi 1.2.x seems to be at least as stable as (the much improved) Ubuntu Oneiric for us, and far lower cpu/RAM requirements.
