    This is a troll post. Just ignore it.

    I like this UI. It looks like it's optimized for touch screens and tablet PCs, not only netbooks...

    Amazing!

    Just one suggestion Michael: would you consider implementing a way to better browse the pictures in the articles, something that works as a gallery browser. That would be a real plus for Phoronix!

    Thank you ;-)

    I'll make sure this will get mentioned on the download page.
    Is it possible to build a version that doesn't depend on SSE3, using that Moblin Image Creator?

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).
    Amen to that brother .

    You must be new to open source? Are you aware of the reality?

    @AdrenalineJunky
    I did not try KDE, I'm using it ATM, archlinux and svn kde4 packages, but it only runs on one of my machines do to obvious reasons.

    /me wants to buy a good netbook Moblin looks so good that netbooks might be worth paying few hundreds.

    Its still quite buggy, I get loads of these crash reports etc. And their repositories are quite empty, but I guess that can be redeemed by adding some Fedora repos?

    And keep an eye open when you install and make sure you configure grub correctly if you got more systems on your computer.

    And glxgears gives like 500 fps on ubuntu 8.10, but only like 120 on moblin (obviously). Plus the web browser seems a moderately sluggish compared to firefox on ubuntu.

    also using arch, with both KDE and a customized openbox environment...

    i gotta say, i rather like KDE - its a great all in one solution - though i do mainly use openbox, thats not for everyone.

    there is a difference between something sucking and you not liking it though, KDE is good, just also not for everyone.
