Power Optimizations: taking advantage of the power states in the Atom architecutre (C-State, P-State, T-State), by keeping the CPU in deeper C-states for longer periods of time, and leveraging the power optimizations from LessWatts.org Fast Boot Optimizations: The Moblin distribution includes several technologies to improve the system boot time, which ranges from Kernel patches, revised init scripts, etc…. The effect of the fast boot technologies/optimizations is to enhance the overall Moblin user experience by improving system responsiveness. Moblin introduces a new compelling user experience based on Clutter. Clutter is an open source software library used for creating sleek, fast and visually rich interfaces with 3D effects and animations, and new intuitive touch-screen based paradigms. It uses OpenGL for rendering but with an API which hides the underlying GL complexity from the developer. Moblin also provides high level platform specific Clutter toolkit (e.g. NBTK for netbooks) which make development of these compelling experiences and applications even easier. Multimedia frameworks: Moblin contains extensive support for technologies that enable multimedia usage models including streaming content from the web, capturing and viewing locally stored video content, listening to locally stored music, capturing and storing images locally, as well as sharing multimedia content with others using YouTub, MySpace, Flickr, etc…Moblin supports both Gstreamer and Helix multimedia frameworks thus offering choice and flexibility to meet customer needs. Many popular open source multimedia applications use Gstreamer for example, whilst a number of multimedia related technologies are part of Helix including Helix DNA Server.Connection Manager: often short named ConnMan is a daemon for managing Internet and Intranet connections in Moblin. It was initially launched by Intel in 2008, and then re-launched as a joint Intel-Nokia project in June 2009. Currently it is co-led by Intel and Nokia. ConnMan is designed to be thin (very small footprint), with minimal dependencies such that it can fit in embedded systems. It includes plugins for various wireless technologies (3G, WiMax, WiFi, …)- Moblin is an OS that will be used in many countries by people speaking multiple languages. Currently, Moblin is translated in these languages: Brazilian Portuguese, Chinese (Simplified), Chinese (Traditional), Dutch, English, Finnish, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Spanish (Castilian), Swedish. We have also have new community translations in Laotian, Malay, Ukrainian, Catalan, Norwegian, Punjabi, and Turkish.
