    Just to confuse matters more, I think Moblin is Fedora-based. Novell's contribution appears to be to apps and the new UI, Clutter, but maybe I'm wrong.

    <Beineri> the news story states "Moblin v2.0 Beta on openSUSE" - which is obviously wrong as it's based on SLED

    Beineri isn't going to like me because I keep copy pasting stuff from iRC

    Moblin - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Moblin is an open source project focused on developing software for Mobile Internet Devices (MIDs) and other new categories of devices such as netbooks and nettops. [1] Intel launched the Moblin.org site in July 2007 and significantly updated the site in April 2008 with the launch of the Intel Atom processor family at the Intel Developer Forum in Shanghai. A custom SDK is also available on the site. The Moblin 2 OS was specifically designed to run on an Intel Atom processor in a netbook[2]. In April 2009 Intel turned Moblin over to the Linux Foundation.[3]
    At the 2009 Linux Collaboration Summit in San Francisco, Intel demonstrated that the Moblin 2 alpha release can load major components of the stack, including the graphics system, and start up in mere seconds.[4] A few weeks later, Novell announced their own rebranded edition of the distribution.[5] On May 19th 2009, Imad Sousou of Intel announced on behalf of the Moblin steering committee the release of Moblin v2.0 beta for Netbooks and Nettops for developer testing. [6] The second major release marks a shift from the XFCE desktop environment to a custom built UI based on OpenedHand's Clutter, a key piece of the Maemo and Sugar graphical environments, built around the standard Xorg X-Windows server. The new UI also includes an integrated Gecko engine web browser.[7]

    Does this entail a Moblin forum on the openSUSE website?

    In a fit of recklessness I installed it on the primary drive of my eeepc and I *certainly* could use some community support. Without putting too fine a point on it, it's been beaten with a beta stick.

    But it does look very promising - boots preposterously quickly, and the UI is what a netbook UI should be.
