Ten Linux distributions for your netbook...
Some of these operating systems will be remixes of popular distributions made specifically for netbook hardware. Others are just the run-of-the-mill distributions that happen to run perfectly on the netbook. Installing these distributions is made very simple with UNetbootin, which allows you to put any of these Linuxes on a USB drive for easy installation.

One word of caution: you can put any distribution on your netbook, but it is not advised. Why? Because of the nature of the netbook, you need to avoid too many writes to the RAM drive and you do not need a swap partition.
