Thanks Jeff. I will try it and let you all know how it goes. It will be the first time I have ever installed a Linux disto that uses Enlightenment. (I have tested some Live CD images in the past with it though)

The latest thing I tested on my Acer was Chromium OS. It ran OK, but I was not able to get the wireless to work. But my main question about it would be, "Why in world is it so freaken huge? The install was like 2GB and it is nothing but a web os? Anyway I was not too impressed with it. I connected to the LAN with a cable, and browsed and watched a couple of videos. Performace wise it was fine, and it booted in about 15-20seconds, but I don't think I am ready to move to a web based only model yet. IMO as a browser centered OS xPUD is better, it boots faster, and it works with skype. I doubt Google will start supporting skype any time soon.
The smallest good deed is better than the greatest intention.
