Novell throws support behind Moblin Linux for Intel Atom netbooks, devices

"Novell is creating a version of Moblin for netbooks that it will help market to PC manufacturers through a new design lab in Taiwan, where most netbooks are made.

"The deal is somewhat of a surprise. Novell has had moderate success getting PC makers to install SUSE Linux. Lenovo Group Ltd., MSI Computer Corp. Hewlett-Packard Co. and First International Computer Inc. all have netbook models shipping with SUSE Linux.

"Meanwhile, Moblin, despite Intel's imprimatur, has yet to be installed on any popular netbooks. Most netbooks have Microsoft Corp.'s Windows XP operating system installed. Meanwhile, the hype favors Google Inc.'s Linux-based Android operating system on netbooks and devices running the ARM processor, and Windows 7 for x86 processors."
