My sister gave me a Dell Mini 10 netbook a couple months ago. I was very excited thinking this would be a great little beater web device that I could leave in the truck or use out in the yard or whatever and if it got destroyed, I am not really out anything. *But* it has Intel GMA 500 ( Poulsbo ). I can't put any newer distributions on it because the kernel modules that exist are stuck with ancient versions of everything. And before someone mentions Intel open-sourcing drivers that is not the case for this POS because they licensed it from some 3rd party.
So my options are either use Windows XP (that came preinstalled) or use it in crippled mode in Linux. Fuck you very much Intel.
