I rather liked the dell launcher application and have heard that since it used the lpia kernel it was more energy efficient, but with Ubuntu 8.10's support for the atom I have been getting very good battery life (4 hour range). Both dell remix and netbook remix have good usability, so I think it boils down to preference and aesthetics. I don't really care for the netbook remix that much, so so far I've just been sticking with 8.10 with the standard desktop.
