Thank you all for great feedback, I found these awesome online
resources for gma500_gfx -

Author of Github article says that driver were included (or planed to
be) in Meego, has that ever happened? Did Alan Cox continue to work on
this driver?

So I have three options to suggest to my friend:
- Latest Fedora or Mint but with Vesa driver only, and maybe can't
even get full resolution then
- Old Ubuntu (but still supported) + prorietary drivers
- full blown priprietary - Windows 7 + Intel/PowerVR driver

Luckily he has chosen to stick with Linux so I'll help him with
install and setup.
