I second the vote for Salix, I love it! , I would love to run chromeos on my netbook, but alas even the lime build of hexxeh doesn't like my hardware.

I think you can run whatever distro u like (just not ubuntu).. I recommend you try some tiling windows manager. fedora kde is fine, just install for example i3wm and try it out. it will run much smoother.
