I stopped by the MSI booth this afternoon and got a chance to check out the new MSI Wind U135 netbook running SUSE Linux with the Moblin user interface. This model will begin shipping in February, and Novell says SUSE has been optimized to boot in as little as 30 seconds.

While the Moblin interface is full of widgets for interacting with web services, sort of like the Skylight user interface Lenovo is using on its upcoming smartbook, under the hood you have a full Linux desktop environment. That means you’ll be able to install applications packaged to run on SUSE Linux as well as programs that will be available from Intel’s developer program for Atom.

You can check out a brief hands-on video after the break.
