I have an idea that Apple is putting the hardware restrictions on Lion mostly to prevent its use on underpowered machines, and our netbooks certainly fall into that category.
I have gotten Lion to run on VirtualBox, and it definitely uses a lot more resources than Snow Leopard. 2 GB of RAM are a minimum for installation, and Snow Leopard had no such limitation. Once I got it going as a VM the difference in performance was immediately noticeable.
Even if someone figures out how to get our Atom Hackintoshes to run Lion I will be staying put. I don't have a touchscreen on my Latty 2100, so I don't feel I'll be missing much in the way of new features.
