This Linux distribution designed for Mobile Internet Devices (MIDs) and netbooks will now be supported by the Linux Foundation. Just last month we looked at how fast Moblin V2 boots on Atom hardware (like the Samsung NC10) and had even provided Moblin vs. Ubuntu Mobile benchmarks.
Now with the Linux Foundation taking control of Moblin, perhaps we will see this Fedora-based Linux distribution appearing on more non-Intel hardware like the VIA Nano or NVIDIA's ION platform. How the Linux Foundation deals with the Intel Poulsbo driver will also be interesting since right now it's a bloody mess and is a blob.
The press release announcing the Linux Foundation hosting the Moblin project can be found at LinuxFoundation.org.
