Question Eee PC


Hello Linux people, this newbie would like to know what would be the best (as in thinnest and lightest) distro to install in my faithful old Eee PC. Have been using Ubuntu but would like to find something very light and perhaps a tad faster.

If you like Ubuntu and want something lightweight I would recommend Lubuntu or Bhodi Linux.

I've been using Lubuntu on my Samsung netbook and it works great.
It's like Ubuntu but uses the lightweight LXDE WM.

You can give Crunchbang a try. Runs reasonable well on my Acer Aspire One with 512MB memory and 8GB SSD.
