I don't have suspend because I have no need of it.
If I wanted suspend I would get Adam's Kernel and Fewt's scripts. And then I would get royally brassed off because the scripts don't work properly and my CPU wouldn't run at the correct speed. And then I would have to jump through hoops to correct it all. Unsuccessfully. Even after receiving emails from the developer saying "do this and do that and it wil work".
That's why I dropped Eeebuntu 3.0. I got fed up with being told it worked out of the box. Flawlessly.
I got fed up waiting for the scripts to be sorted and so I came to Mint.
And I'm happier with it. It doesn't claim to be perfect for the Eee series and therefore I came to it with no expectations.
I have wireless, webcam and sound working out of the box. And that's all I really need.
This is not meant as a slur on the Eeebuntu team. They're a great team doing some sterling work. I loved Eeebuntu 2.0. If they had released version 3.0 with the option of the scripts rather than them being foisted upon me, I reckon I would've been a lot happier.
just for the record, are you saying that Mint 7 works flawlessly out of the box with the 1000HE? This would be a handy hing to know so I can point other users in a Mintier direction.
