I almost didn’t see this, but the Moblin steering committee has just announced the final release of Moblin v2.0, as well as a preview of v2.1.
“Expect to see OSVs and OEMs shipping products based on Moblin v2.0 for netbooks.”
There is even a builder to create your own custom Moblin version.
Also released is a package manager for Moblin:
“You can now browse and easily install new applications on your Moblin based netbook, using the Moblin Garage and Moblin Application Installer.
The Moblin Garage is an online applications catalog that contains free/open source software applications released under a recognized open source license along with proprietary applications redistributed at no cost.”
Things are heating up!
