Yesterday Moblin team released new UI for their system. And most of “Moblin team” are my colleagues from OpenedHand times. It is nice to see what they were working on during time when we no longer worked in same team.

I have to admit that I did not tried Moblin 2.0 beta. None of my machines use Atom cpu and I do not plan to check how it works on my desktop machine (1920×1080 is bigger then 1024×600 used by netbooks so results could be strange). I read Ars Technica review and watched introduction video on YouTube. But they show how many projects were used to produce one product. Maybe not finished yet but impressive enough to track it’s future.

Will I use it one day? Hard to tell — it looks like lacking some components like mail or IRC client (I do not like being forced to use IM client for IRC).

    I have got an Intel Atom based machine so I promptly tested it (see link) Would be exciting seeing clutter in an OpernEmbedded target image, maybe on a different architecture too like ARM, altrhough Intel wouldn’t be so happy 😉

    @Marco: It is a problem on ARM targets — only OMAP3 and i.mx31 ones have working OpenGL/ES which is required by Clutter.

    And we have Clutter in OpenEmbedded.
