While Eee PC enthusiasts have done a great job of tweaking popular Linux distributions like Ubuntu, Mint, and Fedora to work properly on the tiny laptop, the folks behind Mandriva have decided to build Eee support directly into the main branch of their next release. Mandriva 2008.1 is designed to work with the Eee PC out of the box. There's no need to tweak any config files or run any scripts to get the WiFi, webcam, or any other hardware working.

Mandriva 2008.1 will be launched in April. You can either install the operating system on an Eee PC with a USB CD/DVD-ROM drive, or you can download the installer to your device and install it from within Windows or Linux.
