What distros work well on an eeePC with an 800x480 7-inch non-touch display and a 2GB SSD flash drive? I tried a couple, but they're definitely not optimized for 800x480. I need something for rich text editing, for video, and for web browsing.

I use Archlinux on mine. It's worked well for me for nearly four years now.

Ångström is probably your best bet; it's made for embedded devices, which frequently have smaller screens.
