Moblin Linux - Test drive the future

Filed under
Linux

Whether you like it or not, the world is becoming more and more of a blur. The classic boundaries of what is and what isn't are getting smeared as technology takes an ever greater grip on our lives. In the olden days, there used to be a PC and then came the laptop. Today, we have notebooks, netbooks, netbooklets, mobile phones, smart phones, all sorts of things that are essentially miniature computers - and people like them.

Thinking globally, I decided to test Moblin, a Linux optimized for the next generation of mobile devices. Alongside Windows Embedded, Google Android and iPhone, Moblin is a strong candidate for low-power machines that are going to flood the market in the coming years, unless the world crumbles.

Moblin is still in the earliest alpha stages, so what you see today may be completely and utterly different from the end result. Still, one day, there's a fair chance you'll be running a Linux distro on one of your mobile devices.

Now, let's review Moblin!
