As far as I know, there are none, at least none that I personally notice. I own one and I run Ubuntu on it. The only thing is, once you get Ubuntu on it, your wireless card will not be detected by default, but it is quite easy to install the driver, you are looking for the ath5k driver I believe.

Couple of bugs, but nothing major.

Guide covers pretty much everything. I really do recommend netbook remix for the interface, or if XFCE is a good alternative to normal Gnome, which I find to heavy handed for the AAO and the 1024x600 screen.

Also, use this config and compile the latest kernel.

It's stripped of the stuff you don't need. I had a play about an got about 20 secs off my standard Ubuntu Kernel boot time.
