Moblin’s future seems to be brighter than most people anticipated. First we got a confirmation that Moblin 2.1 may be running in mobiles of tomorrow and now Dell unveils that Inspiron Mini 10 will be running it too. Do not underestimate Moblin. Although it is not here to compete with Ubuntu, the OS by itself is a super-stable and robust Linux distro. It has been reported that Dell is initially aiming this model at developers.
Price remains $299, similar to the Windows XP version. This seems a little weird considering that our old friend XP is several times more matured than Moblin. But obviously Dell thinks different and seem to have high hopes on this version of Linux.
