Here at the lab we run Eee PCs on our robots. We just installed Ubuntu 10.04
and after that ROS. However opening the Eee PCs lid can be very helpful at
times to do some maintenance on the software, so we kinda like the fact that
we have the graphical interface. We also have a couple of erratic with built
in PCs and they have the same setup, regular Ubuntu 10.04.
