Moblin v2.1 adds new features and developments and will be used as the base for future new user experience support for Mobile Internet Devices (MIDs), in-vehicle infotainment (IVI), and embedded devices, such as media phones. The release target for Moblin v2.1 for netbooks and nettops is expected to release to the community in Q4 2009. The Moblin v2.1 release for netbooks and nettops includes many community and customer requested enhancements; for example, support for additional nettop screen resolutions, myzone improvements, IM improvements, better language support, updated kernel, Moblin Garage, Moblin Application Installer, 3G data support, and Bluetooth. The Moblin v2.1 release timing for other user experiences, such as MID, IVI and embedded devices, will align with the availability and release of those hardware platforms. Please use the moblin bugzilla to file any bug reports and provide any additional feedback to the new release on the moblin development mailing list. It's with your feedback and community support that we can continue to innovate and provide further enhancements to Moblin. Moblin images require an Intel Atom* processor based netbook or nettop. The following platforms are what we have been using for testing purposes: Acer AspireOne*; Asus eeePC* 901; 1005ha; 1008ha; Dell Mini* 9; 10, and 10v, MSI Wind*; Toshiba NB205-XX*; and Samsung NC10*.

The school here gave my youngest child one of these Acer One laptops for his reading homework. When he is done with those test he gets to keep the laptop. I have to say these are not gamer systems by far, but not bad for the price and the slim portable factor. Maybe I'll try this out later on his Acer when he is finished. :)

Installed on my Acer One 8.9" and works perfect. Sometimes the previous build would not go into standby correctly, but maybe this was resolved in this build. I wish WiFi would be recognized a little quickly. Looking forward to updates and new builds.
