Looking for a light weight Linux distribution to replace the Xandros operating system Asus ships with the Eee PC? Eeextra has posted a handy overview of fluxflux-eee, and it looks purty.

 

More importantly, WiFi works, the hotkeys work, you can manipulate the fan speed, and you can run fluxflux from a USB stick or install it to the SSD. After installation, you should have about 2GB of free space on an Eee PC 4G.

  1. I may have to give this a try. Fluxbox should fly on a 900 16G. I run Fluxbox on an old Compaq 7360 with a 500Mhz AMD K62 and 128MB of ram with Slackware and it’s smooth. even the 700 trumps those specs.
