Thanks for sharing. Stumbled upon this when searching for a lightweight Linux distro to run Plex on, found #! Then searched for that and Plex and found you.
I just installed Ubuntu 10.0.4 on my old eeePC (900Mhz, 2GB RAM). I didn’t expect much. It works ok-ish but obviously a lighter distro would be good.
I gift give it a go after reading your post. Cheers!
