I have a feeling even if it ran on the 10v it would be very, very slow.

I just ordered a few more SSD's and I'm going to throw one in my 10v. Does Lion yet run on this netbook, or should I just go with Snow Leopard?

Lion requires a 64 bit processor which the 10v lacks. Lion's version of Finder is 64 bit only.

I haven't seen a 32 bit replacement for it yet, so I would stick with Snow Leopard.

^^ But people have stated DP runs on it... and there are kernel hacks to make the OS run on 32-bit platforms aren't there?

The DP does run with 32 bit compatibility, but not the Retail version.

Lion retail now works with 32 bit. You need a couple of files from the DP1.
Source: HCL 10.7.0/Portables - OSx86

The performance is is much better than in SL. It is much faster.
Install Method: Extract Retail disk to a USB key. You'll need a USB Keyboard/Mouse for installation.
Bootloader: Chameleon RC5 r1083. Later versions of Chameleon do work.
Kernel: mach_Kernel. 32-bit Kernel from lion dp1.
Kexts: Use the kexts you have for SL.

You have to replace the following from lion 10.7DP1 onto lion 10.7 final install:
AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext
AppleIntelCPUPowerManagementClient.kext
AppleIntelIntegratedFramebuffer.kext
mach_kernel.ctfsys Mach:kernel
and also add Match_kernel_dp1_atom_apic to root directory,
com.apple.finder.savedstate from library/saved application state/
ubiquity from privateframeworks/ubiquity.frameworks/versions/A/ubiquity
com.apple.finder.plist from library/preferences/com.apple.finder.plistFinder
32Bitsfinder app Lion dp1 from system/Library/coreservices
You need to change the above finder app in order to have a working 32Bit finder,for lion 10.7 has a default 64Bit finder and it will not work in your 32 Bit system otherwise.
Also if you wish to install onto an MBR partition you have to use Nawcom MBR patch.

Someone whilling to try? I will do it in Januari when I get back from the holidays but I think it will work
