I hated UNR. It made me feel like my computer was a giant PDA.
I haven't had any software related problems for my AAO w/ Ubuntu. In fact, TBH, I've never had a problem w/ Ubuntu.
Arch Linux works about the same w/ KDE. Runs like a dream. The only thing I can not stand is how bad the fonts look. I have tried everything and they still look like crap.
For us netbook users, the JFS file system seems to be an answer. It makes watching youtube videos and browsing the web nice because it uses about 5 % less CPU; 10 % during heavy stress. For most people, it doesn't matter what FS they use, but for netbooks being choosy with your file system can help.
Just remember if you decide for JFS, use it in conjunction with the deadline I/O scheduler and the noatime and nodiratime options enabled.
I also heard there's a Ubuntu distro made especially for the EEE's. It's called, not suprisingly, eeebuntu.
I would try Linux Mint if you are having problems w/ Ubuntu, since it has more drivers, supposedly.
