[News] Review of Moblin, Charity Killer's GNU/Linux for Mobile Devices

Hash: SHA1

First look at Moblin V2 Core Alpha

,----[ Quote ]
| There has been lots of fanfare around netbooks since this new market exploded 
| onto the scene little more than a year ago. Starting with the ASUS Eee PC, 
| other manufacturers soon followed suit to the point where most major 
| computing brands now have a netbook of some description. This major growth 
| has not been limited just to the hardware realm however, software too has 
| come along for a slice of the pie. Last year saw many new distributions 
| targeting these little machines, most being based off larger mainstream 
| distributions. Intel, who helped boost this market with the release of their 
| low-powered Atom processor, has also been busy in the software arena, 
| sponsoring the Moblin project - a Linux-based platform aimed squarely at 
| netbooks running its hardware.          



Moblin2 first impressions -- wow, does it boot fast!

,----[ Quote ]
| A lot of notebooks and even netbooks these days run Windows, but also offer a
| minimalist Linux environment that boots in seconds. Now, with the
| Intel-sponsored Moblin project's alpha release of Moblin 2 Monday, it looks
| like insanely fast boots will become a standard feature of full-featured
| Linux desktops, too.

| Intel's CEO has said that he sees the revolution that is about to happen
| around mobile internet devices (MID) such as the Eee PC and other Atom-based
| sub-notebooks will be "centred round Linux", in an interview with Associated
| Press.

| System optimized for netbooks & mobile internet devices (MIDs).


Moblin 2.0 alpha posted -- and targets netbooks

,----[ Quote ]
| The Intel-sponsored Moblin Project has released an alpha version of its
| second-generation "Moblin V2" Linux-based toolkit for mobile devices -- and
| it targets netbooks initially, rather than mobile Internet devices (MIDs).
| The Moblin V2 Core Alpha for Netbooks is available for testing now, says
| Moblin.org.
