I was just sort of surfing around, and came across Moblin OS. I had seen it in passing before, but I actually went to the site and had a look around. It’s an OS that is built for mobile devices and netbooks. I looked at some images of the desktop, and it looks really different from either Ubuntu or Ubuntu Netbook Remix / Jolicloud. Moblin is NOT designed for desktops or even regular laptops. It was designed to work with Netbooks, and primarily netbooks that are built on Intel Atom hardware. Check out Netbook Screenshots – it looks really unique. I wonder if I could run everything that I’m running on Ubuntu now… it would be tough to switch away from Karmic since it has worked so well for me.
I think I might give it a try just booting from USB, and see how it goes.
