I am looking for an OS to replace Windows XP Home edition on my Asus Eee PC 1001PX netbook.
The most critical issue for me is battery life.

I would like to use Ubuntu Netbook Edition, but heard that it is a battery eater.
A friend of mine recommended Puppy Linux, he said that it is lightweight and definitely will run longer than Windows XP.

What is the most energy-saving OS for this netbook? . Please advice.
