What is the best linux distro to slap on my HP Mini 110-3030NR netbook? I'm looking to wipe Windows 7 Starter from it since it's just too slow and laggy. What would be the best distro to use in it's place? I feel Ubuntu now is a bit too heavy for it. So i'm looking for something light....really light that'll make my 1GB 1.66ghz atom processor netbook run really snappy.

I was thinking that. I figured either Xubuntu or the XFCE version of Mint......I'll probably end up putting Xubuntu on here though. I figured Xubuntu would be a lot more light-weight then Ubuntu since XFCE is as you said, less resource hungry. I'm not sure about Linux Mint's latest version since it uses GNOME3. I did hear they had a XFCE version of Mint, I'd just have to find it to test it out I suppose.

I've tried ubuntu on this netbook before and it just didn't run as fast as I'd like it to. So I'm gonna try Xubuntu and then Mint followed by TinyMe if Xubuntu or Mint fail and don't work well. :) TinyMe will be a last resort however. :P I think Xubuntu will work just fine though, from my experience. :) Just seems like the better option for right now. I'll try it out soon when I can find the time to load it up onto my netbook, i've just been super busy with other things lately and I haven't had the time to do anything with my netbook as of late. I originally bought it to hackintosh it but it proved to be harder then anticipated.....so I'd like a distro of linux that looks and feels similar to OSX.
