Sounds like you want OSX
(or a highly customized linux with bells and whistles)
Honestly, installing Snow Leopard on a Mini is very straight-forward and easy. On top of that, OSX is also efficient and fast. I have had no issues at all with OSX and speed

I'm another vote for Linux, namely Ubuntu. I started this thread
when I first got my 10v and since then it's still doing exactly what I want it to with, apart from those listed, no problems. I'm not a programmer, I mainly use it for web (and web mail) access and Office stuff, and it's great.
I had only a little experience with Linux before this install, I decided to go with Ubuntu because it pretty much works out of the box, I was utterly fed up with various incarnations of Microsoft's horrible creations and although I like how OS X runs on my wife's MacBook, this little 10v has a lot less hardware and I'd rather have something that runs well on it than something that needs constant hacking every time an upgrade comes out. I don't have much time to faff around hacking, fun though it is. YMMV...

OS X. End of story. It runs very fast even with 1 gb ram. It took me 30 min. to install on the hd, using the hd swap method. From there theres only a few more tweaks but not 4 hours worth. Use netbook installer .8.3 RC2 and tell me how it goes!

I vote for any of the three: Ubuntu (NBR in particular), OS X or Win 7. All are very fast and usable. If you go with Ubuntu Netbook Remix, it takes a little adjustments, but I find it's well worth it. My only gripe is the battle I have with my internal wifi.
