    Default The Moblin V2 User Interface Is Very Impressive

    Phoronix: The Moblin V2 User Interface Is Very Impressive

    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 UI along with screenshots and videos.

    Holy crap! That's awesome! But I'm really sad Moblin doesn't support my Celeron M EEE 701... Anyone knows a way to hack it on my little Eee?

    Let's see what KDE freetards have to say, "OMG it is so pretty...". Thank god Moblin uses GTK and GNOME programs. This is what happens when company works on a project, you get a software that doesn't suck as much other GNU projects e.g. KDE and actually works and makes you productive.

    That's nice. I'll take a look at it once it outperforms the KDE 4.2 currently running on my (less than 2 years old) eee701.

    I don't get it, Moblin is free (as in beer and freedom). And KDE isn't a GNU project, Gnome and GTK are.

    So what, KDE is free as in beer and freedom too. In case you haven't heard QT is free now too.

    For future rants, please note that KDE is NOT a GNU project. Thanks!

    be interested to check it out, and also see where the clutter interface could end up.

    interesting, "thank god it uses GTK and GNOME.... doesn't suck as much as other GNU projects e.g. KDE"

    check the list of GNU packages - you wont find kde - you will find GTK and Gnome.

    i'm curious - have you tried kde 4.2 or 3.5? and what distribution did you try kde with?

    This is a troll post. Just ignore it.
