Pros: Familiar to Ubuntu Netbook Edition users, ease of use
Cons: weak update path, network tool could be more automatic

I'm running it right now. Updates are semi-mythical, usually results in an error message of unable to contact look and feel is exactly the same as the early Ubuntu updates to the Xandros-based EeePC interface, which is lovely. Apparently there is a 1.7 and a 2.0 Alpha, but nothing in 1.6 makes it possible to upgrade, only do a new install. For that matter, the LQ Search feature keeps coming up blank when looking for information on this distro.

That's a shame, this is a very good distro and needs to be continued and supported.
