"I got the bits directly from Guy Lunardi, director of "client preloads" at Novell. After speaking with me for a few moments at the recent Intel Developer Forum in San Francisco, Lunardi ducked into Novell's briefing lounge, and emerged a few minutes later with a USB key containing what he described as an "up-to-the-minute" build. He proceeded to install it on an Asus EEE Seashell system for me. He said if I came back that afternoon, he could add another round of important patches, which he expected to arrive within hours.

"Your Linux is ready...

"I never made it back for the updates, but I was impressed with Lunardi's ability to quickly churn out live USB install images incorporating the very latest Moblin patches. No doubt, the credit for that goes to Novell's interesting Open Build Service, a source repo and automated build system aimed at distributed Linux implementation teams, especially those mixing free and commercial apps, or pulling code from lots of different places."
