    It's hard to call for me. Meego is interesting, but it seems designed to obfuscate any tampering with package installation outside of it's proferred options. I was never able to get my (notorious) broadcom wireless card working under Smeegol, though I can generally get it working fairly quickly under any other distribution. I do think Meego's interface is somewhat different, while being very logical and enjoyable. It's simply very difficult to get the tinier points functional. It seems like a good system for a netbook...but it doesn't support finicky netbook hardware, or the common work-arounds. Ubuntu Netbook is good, although I don't really know if it possesses any advantages over Ubuntu Gnome on a netbook, and has some serious disadvantages as far as customization is concerned.

    Definitely recommend Smeegol though for anyone wanting to test a Meego derivative.
