I originally installed Moblin 2 a while ago and was really impressed with how lightweight it was, how quickly it installed, and how absurdly fast it would boot. Well I fielded a couple of questions since then about a bit more detail, so I decided to put this slideshow together. Hosted from my Flickr account, the slideshow has titles, descriptions and is in chronological order. Well I guess that last bit is sort of a ‘duh!’, since it would be kinda stupid to run it backwards.
Moblin 2 is now sporting a kickin’ new interface, and just as fast if not faster load times than before – at least it seems that way. I am very hopeful for this latest build too. I tried to get it running on my Acer Aspire One and had a lot of trouble getting apps installed, and my account wasn’t even in the sudoers group – so I had to switch back to Ubuntu. Which is fine, but I like the idea of Moblin for my netbook more. It’s lighter, faster and designed for that platform. As long as I can get Flash and couple other things running on it – I’m all over it like a fat kid on a doughnut.
