Moblin v2.0 Beta operating system for netbooks updated

Just a few weeks after releasing Moblin 2.0 beta, the team behind the netbook-centric operating system have released an updated, or “refreshed” version. The refresh fixes a number of bugs, and also adds some features, although it’s not clear at the moment what those new features are.

There is a list of known issues, including slower boot times and lack of support for machines with Intel GMA500 graphics. The latest version of Moblin 2.0 beta has been tested on Acer Aspire One, Asus Eee PC 901, Dell Inspiron Mini 9, and MSI Wind netbooks.

    Hope it now works with the 901's wireless. It's been an adored but little used toy so far sadly.

    They are going to have to figure out the driver situation regarding the Intel GMA 500 graphics if they are going to be truly successful with Moblin. A ton of new netbooks seem to be equipped with it.

    This is really something that Intel should address, as I'm not sure the open source folks have the ability to tackle the problem (at least from what I've read).
