Pros: Free-as-in-freedom, pretty stable
Cons: Slow updating, as there is only one person working on it for the EFF.

I run Trisquel Mini on my old ASUS EeePC netbook, an HD 1000. It has been rock-steady even on this ancient, arthritic, slow machine. The default kernel for the Mini version is pretty darned old but it works for the purpose.
My Wifi is no longer working, I am not sure whether that is a hardware problem or the software ... but I can always tether the netbook to my smartphone if I want wireless connectivity in a coffee shop or convention hall.
