I'm downloading this through a torrent now:
According to this linux torrent tracker site, the "One" versions come with "some" proprietary drivers.
LinuxTracker .::. Index->Torrent->Details
I'll let you know later tonight when this download is finished.
BTW, I tried Debian Lenny, but there is NO support for poulsbo drivers at this time.
I made a post regarding poulsbo drivers on their forum and have been ignored for five days now...

While I like Ubuntu; the driver thing can be a pain and I would not mind switching to Mandriva if it gives better support for the GMA 500 chipset. Besides it would be nice to have more Linux options for the 1010.
I put Fedora 11 on a USB drive and it is great; except you only get 800X576 with the display. But everything works great and it boots up much quicker than Ubuntu. Again someone is working on the poulsbo drivers for it; but it is much more involved than Ubuntu to get them working.
Again thanks for the report and keep me in the loop. fdalbor
