I switched from Ubuntu 11.x to this distro on my netbook. I needed something new. Found out about this from /r/linux when someone was asking about what would be the best distro for netbooks.

Even with the rise of tablets and smartphones, many people still prefer netbooks as their portable computing devices. However, with so many Linux distros out there, choosing the right Linux distro for the netbook can be a tough task for a lot of people.
I have a Toshiba nb505 running a 1.67 GHz Atom processor with 2 GB Ram (maxed out as it was upgraded from 1 GB and not supporting of 4 GB). Seeing as how any further upgrades are limited (new motherboard perhaps) I am curious to find a Distro that would work well with the limitations of my machine.
I love Ubuntu, when I ran it on my desktop. However, it has not run well on my netbook.
