What is Moblin OS ?

Jan 11, 2010 by     No Comments    Posted under: Software, Tech Stuff

While reading updates from CES 2010, I have come to a terminology called Moblin OS, but what is Moblin OS, the way it sounds it looks like it is a new operating system ( well new for me ) , so let me share you what I found out about Moblin. Some of you might have already tested this operating syetm already and you are all free to comment and share your experience with it.

What is Moblin OS

Moblin, short for ‘mobile Linux‘, is an open source operating system and application stack for Mobile Internet Devices (MIDs), netbooks, nettops and embedded devices.Built around the Intel Atom processor, current builds are designed to minimize boot times and power consumption to create a netbook and MID-centric operating system. The netbook/desktop version of Moblin currently supports other chipsets based on the SSSE3 instruction set, such as the Core2 and some Celeron processors. ( Source Wikipedia )
So it is an open source operating sytem and further research lead me to http://moblin.org/ where they aim to ” create the mobile internet future “ Moblin is an open source project focused on building a Linux-based platform optimized for the next generation of mobile devices including Netbooks, Mobile Internet Devices, and In-vehicle infotainment systems.

So this gives me a clear idea that Moblin OS is trying to compete with Windows OS, but the good thing is that Moblin is free. So will this be the best free open source OS of the future ? I don’t know how to use Linux and I cannot answer and commnet.

Got anything to say? Go ahead and leave a comment!
