Toshiba NB305 and Ubuntu

At a meeting I attended last night a friend and I were really bored. She has a Toshiba netbook with Windows 7 and I have an EEE 1005HAB with Ubuntu Network Edition.
So we decided to have netbook races.
First system to login prompt.
First to be fully up.
First to connect to the local free wifi.
First to boot and open a browser and go to the meeting website.
First to boot and run a flash in youtube. A few others. You get the picture, we were bored, she's an engineer, I'm an engineer so we have to compare.

As you might guess, my EEE even with an older cpu just smoked the Win 7 system. In every way. What you have to do to get connected to a free wifi network.... What a pain. Plus in comparison to the logical beauty that is the UNE desktop the Win 7 looks cluttery. Her words.

She's going to bring her system over this weekend for me to wipe and install UNE. I don't see much info on this system with Ubuntu. Anybody have an experience?

If it was my netbook I would have the time to screw around with it and get everything working, but.

I didn't read the whole thread but it starts with problems using Ubuntu 9.10 and I think the hardware is newer than 9.10. Ubuntu 10.04 may give much better results. I see the thread ends fairly recently but I didn't read all of it.
