Ubuntu Netbook Remix vs Moblin

Filed under

Ubuntu

Over the last 12 months, netbook and mobile Linux has made massive advances in features and install base. This is primarily thanks to two netbook distributions - Moblin and Canonical's Ubuntu Netbook Remix (UNR). Both have built on the massive potential that was unlocked by the Asus Eee PC but led nowhere, as its operating system failed to inspire a new generation of Linux users.

But now technologies from Google such as Android and Chrome OS are bringing a new wave of innovation to the Linux netbook space, so we thought it was time to take a look at the contenders in the netbook and mobile distro space to see just what's going on. Which netbook distro is right for you? Do they work just as well on desktops? Are Chrome OS or Maemo real contenders?

Not just netbooks
