Thanks. Haven't tried the beta yet.
I have an Acer Aspire One D255E which is nice but the wireless is particular. It flat out hates Linux Mint. Ubuntu is hit and miss. Puppy 525 and 528 are excellent (as is Macpup and Rexbang), the older Puppies either won't connect or won't stay connected. Mepis 11 is excellent on it.
