Question Asus Eee 1000H - Which Ubuntu, eeebuntu 3.01 or Ubuntu 9.1?

Just finished installing the new HDD into my wife's Eee, WD3200BPVT drive - its sweet!, and finished the WinXp build out for her and with the extra space have installed eeebuntu 3.01. After the install the updater downloaded 300 updates, yikes!, and stated that this distribution is no longer supported

Should I stay with the Eee specific netbook version or go with the full 9.01? As the netbook is my wife's I won't be on it much but do use it for photo storage and editing when traveling and basic web browsing/light work via email thanks to Open Office. Not sure the actual benefits of Ubuntu 9.1 on a netbook, anyone know or tried it out and have pros/cons over the Eee dist?

I've got plain old ordinary Ubuntu 10.10 (and a couple of other regualr desktop distros) running just fine on my netbook, an Acer Aspire One AOA150.
