what you would eliminate (have eliminated)?

The eeebuntu standard install has thunderbird, the full open office suite, banshee, vlc- it's all the stuff you'd want on a notebook. Why would you need a music library manager on a device that only holds a few gigs of data? A client would make more sense. I've basically stripped mine down to just a few things, I've got a stripped down GNOME running as my desktop env, GNOME Do (a serious must have on a netbook), firefox, pidgin, a client (forget the name), and a couple of games.
