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."

From the point of view of what an OEM might ship on their devices and how it will all work then this is not an option. At all.

I really don't know why people think that "Oh, you just run rpm -....." is a real answer.


Apparently when Xandros delivered their version to ASUS that was good enough for them...

(I'm not saying this was good mind you, just that I wouldn't assume corporations care as much as about users installing nonbundled apps as you're making them out to be. Also, I think if it hadn't been possible to get Ubuntu or some other distros or even Windows XP on the EeePC it would have failed. Hard.)

Xandros didn't need to. They have something Moblin doesn't right now - applications. At least some anyway. If you then added additional repositories yourself then you were on your own.

...just that I wouldn't assume corporations care as much as about users installing nonbundled apps as you're making them out to be.

1. I don't know why you're talking about corporations.

2. Corporations care just as much about applications as users, because they consist of........users. Organisations install a wide variety of applictions on their desktops every single day.

Also, I think if it hadn't been possible to get Ubuntu or some other distros or even Windows XP on the EeePC it would have failed. Hard.

Well yer, because.........nothing would have ran on it.
