    Ubuntu has a good Netbook-orientated release, called UNE (Ubuntu Netbook Edition). There are other options as well in case this doesn't work.

    Most distributions will work as-is on a netbook, without tweaking. Modifications for netbook-focused releases are usually the interface, for the smaller screen, and to replace some high-resource-using applications with lighter ones even though most netbooks can handle the full-charged ones alright.

    If you are able to make it to the Linux SIG, it meets tonight (3rd Wed of the month) in the resource center at 7:30pm. Directions can be found on the DACS website.
