Oh yeah... totally forgot that PowerVR made stuff for Intel graphics chipsets/controllers.

You're talking about the infamous Poulsbo, right? Good to know that it's finally got decent support on Linux. I remember it being a liquid pain in the past.

Don't quote me on this as I may be remembering it wrong, but it was my impression that Intel had to scrape up support for the 500 since they were targeting netbooks with MeeGo. Given that the MeeGo project is on more or less permanent hiatus, I don't see that situation getting any better.

Still, I'll use it until Haiku matures to the point of daily usability on my Mini. And if that never pans out, I'll try to figure out how MeeGo and/or QuickWeb go about fully supporting the clickpad and go back to Arch with some drivers in tow. For the foreseeable future though, MeeGo fits like a glove.
