I recently installed Ubuntu Linux 'Intrepid Ibex' on my chintzy Acer Aspire One and there have been a number of glitches with the updates (no sound, fan not working properly, keys playing up, card reader reading less than usual...). Apparently there is now an "Ubuntu Netbook Remix (UNR) installer image with the LPIA kernel" available, and this "can be installed as-is on an Aspire One", thereby greatly reducing the number of steps.

This is potentially very good news :) I won't be installing straight away, as the builders are in and I have no internet connection to call my own for a couple of weeks (I'll be going with TalkTalk after a recommendation and they are way cheaper than the BT/Virgin combo I had before).
