Linux "We first got excited for Moblin 2.0 back in January when seeing how fast this Linux distribution had booted on Atom-powered netbooks. This Fedora-derived distribution booted even faster with a newer development release that came out this past March. While Moblin 2.0 final is not yet released, there is now more to get excited over than just amazing boot times. Moblin 2.0 will introduce a Clutter-based user interface and from our initial encounters with this release, it is very impressive! In this article we have more information on this new Moblin UI along with screenshots and videos."

Just running it now on my netbook. I love it, and want more!

From a UI perspective it tries a lot of things I've never seen before, but I've never had a smart-phone so maybe they're inherited from there. Nevertheless, it pulls them off extremely well. Even the implementation of virtual desktops seems very intuitive. It's very polished even at this stage.

Technically it seems good too. It's lean, fast, works with all my hardware.

I could totally see myself using this as a full time UI on my netbook when it's done.
