    SSSE3 is still required; that has not changed.
    I'll make sure this will get mentioned on the download page.

      Man, I would totally buy a netbook just for Moblin if I had the money. That interface looks fantastic. It might even encourage me to keep up with my social networking obligations, which is always good.

      It doesn't look very good for productivity, though. I didn't see any concept of workspaces, but if you're just wanting to surf or do some light work (which is what netbooks are best at), way to go Moblin.

        This really looks impressive!
        One question though, how well does it work with 3G (UMTS/HSDPA) modems compared to Ubuntu (which recognizes my UMTS modem out of the box and connects me)?

          be interested to check it out, and also see where the clutter interface could end up.

          interesting, "thank god it uses GTK and GNOME.... doesn't suck as much as other GNU projects e.g. KDE"

          check the list of GNU packages - you wont find kde - you will find GTK and Gnome.

          i'm curious - have you tried kde 4.2 or 3.5? and what distribution did you try kde with?

            ps: why the hell these retarded trolls like hax0r have to hijack a nice topic like this trying to create a stupid flame war?
            There's no flame war, actually. QT/KDE sucks horridly, GTK/GNOME sucks less, GTK/XFCE sucks acceptibly, but all three are way too bloated, considering that for all purposes, most people don't even _use_ it to the extremes it's designed to (I like GNOME if only because they finally understood that the people using it are on average not even intelligent enough to understand most configuration options; better leave it to the console-based applications). But those are the purposes of such a design.

            It's all a matter of a functionality vs. bloat, I guess. It's just it's most acute with KDE.

            And Moblin looks so awesome, my dear. I'm going to buy an Ideapad just for that (and well, the IdeaPad S10e seems very promising).

              This is a troll post. Just ignore it.

                I like this UI. It looks like it's optimized for touch screens and tablet PCs, not only netbooks...

                    Amazing!

                    Just one suggestion Michael: would you consider implementing a way to better browse the pictures in the articles, something that works as a gallery browser. That would be a real plus for Phoronix!

                    Thank you ;-)

                      Is it possible to build a version that doesn't depend on SSE3, using that Moblin Image Creator?

                        You must be new to open source? Are you aware of the reality?

                        I did not try KDE, I'm using it ATM, archlinux and svn kde4 packages, but it only runs on one of my machines do to obvious reasons.

                          /me wants to buy a good netbook Moblin looks so good that netbooks might be worth paying few hundreds.

                            Its still quite buggy, I get loads of these crash reports etc. And their repositories are quite empty, but I guess that can be redeemed by adding some Fedora repos?

                            And keep an eye open when you install and make sure you configure grub correctly if you got more systems on your computer.

                              And glxgears gives like 500 fps on ubuntu 8.10, but only like 120 on moblin (obviously). Plus the web browser seems a moderately sluggish compared to firefox on ubuntu.

                                also using arch, with both KDE and a customized openbox environment...

                                i gotta say, i rather like KDE - its a great all in one solution - though i do mainly use openbox, thats not for everyone.

                                there is a difference between something sucking and you not liking it though, KDE is good, just also not for everyone.
