Default Lightweight netbook distros

Are any of the netbook remixes still being updated?

I've put the 12.04 alpha on my Acer Aspire One (512MB, 8GB SSD).

After updating, it's 100% functional - but dog-slow. Unity works fine
and fits the small (1024*600) screen nicely. But it takes 1-2min to
boot, LibreOffice Writer takes 1-2 to start, the Soiftware Centre
takes 2-3min and so on.

All the remixes I knew of 2-3y ago seem to be dead and haven't updated
since 10.04 if you're lucky: EasyPeasy (ex Ubuntu-EEE), Aurora (ex
Eeebuntu), gOS (dead), Leeenux, etc.

Is there anything current, as full Ubuntu is now too much for such an
old, low-spec machine.

It's a shame as Unity is the ideal desktop for it. I don't really want
a "full" desktop environment such as GNOME or KDE, just a lightweight
