Debian Lenny

Very mature and stable. Installs on most hardware with out major problems. Huge selection of software.

A perhaps more important question is "What is your linux experiance level?"

Take a look in at Ubuntu, they have a netbook remix available for netbooks.

view the links in my sig, there are links to how-to's for various distros of Linux on the Aspire One.

I run Debian Lenny on my Acer Aspire One, because it's the Distro I am most familiar with.
