Yes. Love it. Especially the really really really fast boot time.

It's what I have right now in my netbook, although I modded the crap out of it. In fact ubuntu-netbook isn't installed anymore. Too slow, and uses too much power as you said. I'm going to install meego next.

You are right. It's about time a linux distro takes the lead in the field of power consumption on netbooks. Windows XP really sucks for netbooks, but it is still waaaaaaay better than win7 starter.

Already done that:

However, power consumption for meego was higher in that test for some reason. CPU performance was better than the rest though.
