The biggest advantage for most users at this point is the hardware support: I incorporated the patched madwifi/atl2 modules as a custom package. (I hate ndiswrapper, so should you.) Boot, install, and you're done.
Suggestions and feedback is very welcome. I want to really polish this off by Christmas time...
Imagine getting (or giving) an eeePC, an eeeXubuntu CD, and a 1GB flashdrive to/from a loved one: Wouldn't you want it-just-works simplicity for you and yours?
p.s. It's pronounced "eXXXXXXX.... ubuntu", preferably with finger tapping. Think Mr. Burns from the Simpsons and you've got the right idea.
2007.12.11: Version 2 has been released, booting from a CD now works. You can also create a bootable USB device directly from the Live CD
