    I like how it actually supports the NC10. I suppose the Intel graphics aren't broken either (would be kinda embarrassing since Intel backed this for so long). This is definitely going on my NC10 once it is finished.

    Default Moblin on HP Mini 1000 Series

    Any chance of running moblin on the HP Mini 1000s, or does the lack of Linux support by Intel for their Poulsbo chipsets disqualify my Mini?

    Hey, they dropped the Atom requiriment, but still fails to boot on my Eee 701, it crashes on login with some "file not founds".. too bad

    ps: why the hell these retarded trolls like hax0r have to hijack a nice topic like this trying to create a stupid flame war?

    It probably need sse3, even if it is not on atom.

    The question is, on previous releases, they explicit said that it only worked with SSE3. This release they are saying that works on any computer with intel graphics

    SSSE3 is still required; that has not changed.
    I'll make sure this will get mentioned on the download page.

    Man, I would totally buy a netbook just for Moblin if I had the money. That interface looks fantastic. It might even encourage me to keep up with my social networking obligations, which is always good.

    It doesn't look very good for productivity, though. I didn't see any concept of workspaces, but if you're just wanting to surf or do some light work (which is what netbooks are best at), way to go Moblin.

    This really looks impressive!
    One question though, how well does it work with 3G (UMTS/HSDPA) modems compared to Ubuntu (which recognizes my UMTS modem out of the box and connects me)?

    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?

    There's no flame war, actually. QT/KDE sucks horridly, GTK/GNOME sucks less, GTK/XFCE sucks acceptibly, but all three are way too bloated, considering that for all purposes, most people don't even _use_ it to the extremes it's designed to (I like GNOME if only because they finally understood that the people using it are on average not even intelligent enough to understand most configuration options; better leave it to the console-based applications). But those are the purposes of such a design.

    It's all a matter of a functionality vs. bloat, I guess. It's just it's most acute with KDE.

    And Moblin looks so awesome, my dear. I'm going to buy an Ideapad just for that (and well, the IdeaPad S10e seems very promising).
