Jolicloud 1.0 or Ubuntu UNR 10.04 FIGHT!
Which is suggested for an Aspire One AOA-100?

I'm started to get unhappy with the way Canonical is going. They are having major regression issues (pets his netbook, happy it survived the Great SSD Crisis unscathed). Then they start making limiting decisions that can't be easily undone (like perma-locking the UNR interface panel, preventing me from changing out the battery status applet). Then there's their new angle - "It just works. Kinda." Between having to hand patch UbuntuOne code, to having to switch to the Proposed repository (at the behest of a Canonical employee) to get Gwibber to work, to waiting in line for U1 one to finally sync my contacts (which worked at one point, but doesn't now), whilst learning I could sync with my cellphone IF my crappy little phone supported such), and decreasing performance, my enthusiasm is waning.
However, I am leery of throwing away something that works (mostly) for something that doesn't. I have VirtualBoxed JoliCloud on my laptop, which, sad to say, is my only "real" machine (thus my missing all the MeFi Steam gaming goodliness as it won't game worth poo), but I am still unsure about JC for day to day usage.
Any suggestions or warnings?
