I've tried a few OSes on my Eee PC 4G Surf, and here are my experiences so far: Windows definitely was the easiest to use for me, though it was sluggish sometimes.. I nLited it to hell and it still only left me ~1.5gb tops after updates and such.. Crunchbang would be great if I knew how to use Linux better, it's fast and seems to do everything. The interface is ugly and I hate the boot screen.. Not very good use of my seven inches of screen sometimes. And Android, ho ho. It's amazingly fast, takes 20mb total, has an amazing web browser... But it's built for a phone. I'm on it right now actually, and I wish I had a touch screen and accellerometer on my Eee PC... All the mouse work is backwards since it's built for finger navigation, but I'm getting used to it. Likely will only keep it for a couple days. I can't get AIM to work, so it's a failure. Very cool though, I can't wait to use Chrome OS.. My Eee PC is too slow for Eeebuntu, so I removed that pretty quick. If I had a better Eee PC, 900HA or something, I would go back to it. What else have people tried on netbooks?
