Mandriva & AAO Netbook

Anybody using mdv with an Acer Aspire One? I currently have Debian on mine but thinking about installing either Mandriva or Fedora just to give me something to try.

What are your experiences with mdv on it?

Why don't you get the latest Ubuntu for netbooks?

Mdv should work fine

I may as well keep Debian if I install Ubuntu...I just want to give a different type of distro a try.

I have read that mdv 2009.1-RC2 has a good installer that it will noticed if the system is low on specs and install based on the specs.

Thnx, I'll give it a try.
