Eee PC 901 Linux - GNU? A linux noob


Im going to be purchasing an Eee PC for mobile surfing/email/study/word etc, and am thinking of getting the Linux version of the Eee PC.

I have not had much experience with Linux based operating systems.. Just a bit with Ubuntu.

What is the GNU distribution like?
Much like Ubuntu?
How the interface? Fancy? Dull?

Im wanting to learn more about Linux. Would this be a good place to start, as Im purchasing an Eee PC anyway.

Welcome to LQ!
But I am going to redirect you here:
and here:
Where you should find ALL your EEEPC questions answered

I love my eee701, currently running kubuntu 8.04 (Instructions as to how to install it are in the wiki), as I did not like the supplied Xandros distribution, although it worked perfectly well, it was difficult to update and install new software.

Have fun.
