Considering I have the same netbook, I actually replaced Linpus with Ubuntu anyway, thanks to the lack of packages on Linpus.
Besides, Linpus's package manager (the same as Fedora's) is also hard to reach. You have to literally open a terminal window and type "sudo system-config-packages" in order to access it (and it uses YUM instead of APT, a huge turnoff).
Also: You can change the desktop background on Ubuntu. Definitely not on Linpus.
Not to mention, Linpus uses a half-baked implementation of Xfce that is more crippleware than not. You can't customize the panel, cannot change the DE without dependency resolving errors, and can only install old versions of popular Ubuntu applications.
Here is my configuration:
Ubuntu, GNOME Shell, and RGBA, not to mention, as of just a few minutes ago (these screenshots were taken yesterday), Google Chromium instead of Firefox. Yes, I also found Chromium in the repos.
Oh, and I am also using a prerelease of Ubuntu (Lucid Lynx Daily Live).
Yes, these were taken from my Acer Aspire One AOA110-1545, the same one you have.
