Netbook - OS

I have had an Acer Aspire One fore some time now - linux of course and ssd. Limpus linux went after a few trials and some hacking. Tried everything - suse- mandriva - redhat- debian-ubuntu- lin4 one - all were -ugh. too heavy for a 500mb of memory.
Thought of upgradin g the memory - then I installed crunchbang linux. 8.10 first - then a custom kernal- all worked well. just moved to 9.10 still impressed. minimalist but great and quick. even runs endnote under wine. nice.
great work #!
