The folks behind the Fedora Linux distribution are hard at work developing a version optimized for netbooks. Fedora Mini incorporates elements of Moblin Linux, which is designed for computers with small, low resolution screens and Intel Atom processors.
Fedora Mini is still in its infancy, but the developers have begun alpha testing the distro. If you’re already testing Fedora Constantine alpha or rawhide, you can install Fedora by typing ‘yum groupinstall “Moblin Desktop Environment”‘ into a terminal window. When you next login or boot your computer just select Moblin User Experience at login.
Fedora Mini currently supports most Intel Atom processors as well as Intel Celeron M (Dothan), Via C7-M, and AMD Geode LX processors. Unfortunately, while Intel GMA 900 and 950 graphics are supported, GMA 500 graphics are not. You can find a complete list of supported hardware including screen resolutions, wireless controllers, and Bluetooth modules at the wiki.
