I have Asus eee 701 laptop at my home. I want to use Linux operating system for my laptop. I have some requirement for my operating system such as - all hardware works immediately, skype is included or reasonable easy to install, can install the newest version of Firefox from a package manager or easily using other means, user friendly etc. Which is the best Linux OS for my laptop? Is there any operating system of Linux which can fulfill my requirements? Please help me out.

Re: which one is the best Linux OS for Asus Eee PC

There is nothing like best Linux OS. The OS is best if it fulfill all user?s requirements. However there are some answers to your question arethere is one Linux operating system known as EEE 900 which is the latest. It has some features like support to all EEE pc models, convertible background and theme, it has virtual machine such as QEMU, virtual box, there are lot of package update including Firefox and kernel 2.6.26, support Hyper threading. I hope this will give you some idea.

I can give you a suggestion to use PupEEE. Because I have good experience with PupEee. It is a puplet based on Puppy 4.2 with all the drivers for the 70X and 900 series Eees readly loaded. If you want to work as right out of the box then it will suite you. Because it simply work as advertised. I am not confirmed that it is a best Linux OS but it also not a bad one so you can try this for better experience. I hope this will work.

There is another product for you which is known as Breeezy . It is lightweight puplet for the 70Xs and 900s. Breeezy is a version of the Safepup variant of Puppy Linux, customized for the Eee. It is very fast, installs easily to an SD card, works well in a dual-boot system with XP, and it is easy to install additional software on it. It comes with Firefox. I will not force you to use this one. but try this OS at least once for better experience. I hope this will work for you. Thank you.

I can suggest you one operating system which I prefer from last two months. I have an OS, whose name is BrowserLinux (nee BrowserPuppy). It is an OS with no frills and no thrills that has the drivers for the older EEEs preloaded. If you like to do surfing the web then it is the most favorable OS for you. I hope this might help you.

I have some information to you. The Mint team released "Julia" based on Ubuntu 10.10 which plays nice job with my 701/4g. it will work with Skype, webcam, wifi etc. it has great functionality and it is easy to use DE. there is latest version of it called LMDE which is based on a rolling distro of debian testing instead of Ubuntu. I use this one as my primary OS. There's even an XFCE version for those needing less bloat than the Gnome version. I think it will help you.
