"Moblin 2.0, is a stripped-down distribution of Linux optimised
for smaller screens on netbooks and mobile Internet devices (MIDs).
Intel has fine-tuned Moblin for netbooks based on Atom chips with a
simple user interface and improved power-saving features.
"Most netbooks today ship with Intel's Atom chip but run the
Windows XP operating system, which Microsoft ships for low-cost
laptops. But Intel wants to ensure that every "ounce" of technology
- including Moblin - put into Atom is optimised for size and power
consumption, said Doug Fisher, vice president and general manager
of the software and services group at Intel."
