Hi There,
I didn't know where to post this, so my appollogies if it's in the wrong area.
I'm one of the lucky? Ubuntu users with a Poulsbo powered Netbook, and I've tried Ubuntu 10.04 and 10.10 with the community driver, but the xv video ceases to work, but in 9.10 everything works well, and I'm worried in whats going to happen after April when Canonical pull the plug. Will I still be able to install software from the Software Centre or the Synaptic Package manager? or will I be stuck with a dead duck?
I've been running Ubuntu 9.10 on my Acer Aspire One AO751h since January 2010, and I'm enjoying using it, and I also have 10.04 on both my Home Server and Desktop PC's, which work a dream.
As for changing to another distro that will work on this machine, I've tried them all, even the PRETEND distro's like Jolicloud and I don't like them.

Many thanks for any info on this.
