  • 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.

  • 8. Moblin v2 Beta Reviews
    The Moblin V2 User Interface Is Very Impressive
    ...more to get excited over than just amazing boot times. Moblin 2.0 will introduce a Clutter-based user interface and from our initial encounters with this release, it is very impressive!
    Hands-on: Intel brings rich UI to Moblin Linux platform
    it's an enormously impressive step in the right direction. When Moblin finally arrives on devices, it will make Linux netbooks significantly more competitive and appealing to end-users.
    Download Squad
    Moblin Beta 2 evolves into a capable Linux option for netbooks
    ... the fast-booting Linux distribution aimed at providing a better instant-on experience. Today marks the official release of Beta 2, and it's taking shape rather nicely.
    I'd Actually Use a Netbook With Intel's Moblin 2.0 OS
    Intel's Moblin 2.0 OS is designed specifically for netbooks, and marks the first time I've ever been tempted to utter "wow" and "netbook" in the same sentence.
    Information Week
    Moblin Moves Into The Public Eye
    ... Moblin's native interface, which straddles a curiously wavering line between netbook, notebook, and phone interface.
    Moblin v2.0 Video- Finally, a Real Mobile UI for Netbooks
    My initial impression: It’s one of the first, true mobile user interfaces for netbooks and not just another desktop environment that’s tweaked for the small screen.
    Hands-on: Intel brings rich UI to Moblin Linux platform
    it's an enormously impressive step in the right direction. When Moblin finally arrives on devices, it will make Linux netbooks significantly more competitive and appealing to end-users.
    Moblin is Front and Center
    ... has now bloomed into a workable, and fairly awesome netbook based OS. Moblin developers, keep doing what you are doing, cause you're doing it well.
