I've installed XFCE Mint on my Acer Aspire One. Am very happy with how its performing currently, looks great on the small screen (have reduced font sizes etc to get it looking good on the screen). I followed evertyhing on the Ubunutu guide to get it running ( https://help.ubuntu.com/community/AspireOne
I'm now looking for some further boot time improvements / speed improvements on the system. Basically anything to make it as light weight as possible. Any ideas?
One more thing, to anyone whose using the AAO; have you been able to get the right hand side card reader working?
