Mandriva, Mandrake, Lycoris Mandriva's second release candidate for Mandriva 2010 adds a Moblin UI option, and (in the paid version) auto-detected support for the closed GPU in Intel's Poulsbo companion chip. So, if you've got one of those teensy CompuLab FitPC2s, an early Dell netbook, or perhaps a MID or single-board computer based on Menlow, it might be worth a look.

A lot of netbooks uses Poulsbo

Do not forget that a lot of actual netbooks uses the "Poulsbo" US15W chipset with GMA500 graphic processor.

Just take a close look to the actual specifications of the netbook, that's always a wise move by the way since GMA950 offers both a much better driver support (especially under Linux) and better 3D performances -- of course at the expense of more heat and less battery-life.

For instance, the Asus EeePC T91 or the Sony Vaio P are both using it. The same goes for Acer Aspire One 751 or Asus EeePC 11O1, those two "mini-laptops" with 11" display. And others...
