Toshiba nb205


I'm wanting to put linux on my netbook (toshiba nb205). I tried ubuntu netbook remix and was unhappy, wifi would randomly disconnect, the system seemed to lag a lot, video playback was super choppy.

Now I'm not sure if all those were ubunut issues but I'd like to try a different distro

Anyone have a suggestion? I was personally thinking debian as that is what I normally use

I don't use netbooks, but these two seem worth a try.

Let me know if they turn out okay.
