I'm definitely going to play with Android for x86, but its a pretty limited OS so I would really hate to permanently cripple my i5 tablet with it. I forgot to mention I'm working with Asus EP121.
I'll take a look at Unity. I also tried Puppy Linux, but it didn't like my usb wireless keyboard, so I'll have to find a wired one before I try it again.
I wonder, is it even possible to login to Linux without a keyboard? I don't see any way to bring up on screen keyboard at login screen in my current openSuse distro.
