Hi Billie,

I've just gotten me one of these little things too, although I haven't 
had much of a chance to play with it yet. I see Myriam recommends 
eebuntu (above), but in the interests of being bipartisan (I haven't 
tried either so can't comment on pros/cons), you can check out eeedora 
as well. Link is here: http://complexvalues.com/ and here 

Good luck - please let us know if you put something else on, and how it 
works for you!
