Linux If you're an owner of a netbook or other hardware containing an Intel Poulsbo / GMA 500, the Linux 2.6.39 kernel should be rather exciting. Entering the Linux kernel's staging tree is an initial open-source driver for this notorious Intel graphics processor derived from Imagination Technologies' PowerVR SGX graphics core.

The poulsbo chips have shipped in so many devices for years now. I had a Nokia Booklet with one and was sorely disappointed that my Nokia computer with an Intel chipset could not support Meego, an OS co-developed by both Nokia and Intel!
