I have been using easy peasy 1.6 on my old EeePC 1001 HA. Things are working well. The only thing, the updating software seems not to be working. That is why I am looking for another ubuntu version that is up to date, easy to use and fast.

What version do you recommend ?

Here are the specs : CPU & Chipset Intel® Atom™ N270 Memory DDR2 SO-DIMM 1GB Wireless Data Network WLAN 802.11b/g/n @2.4GHz

I just helped my brother get an old Eee PC 1015PE updating again even though it is running an obsolete version of Ubuntu. The trick is to edit /etc/apt/sources.list and change every reference to *.ubuntu.com to old-releases.ubuntu.com. You won't get security updates or the latest software, but it can postpone having to consider a complete OS upgrade.
