Back in February we were first to share the news that Linpus was going to launch a QuickOS Linux operating system. They did that, but we can now also tell you that next week Linpus Technologies will be launching a new version of their Linpus distribution that is based upon Moblin V2. One of their representatives decided to send us the information early again, and so we have it for you now.

A new version of Linpus Linux Lite will be introduced next week at Computex Taipei and it will be based upon the impressive Moblin V2 work carried out by Intel. This new Linpus release is said to boot 26% faster thanks to the Moblin migration.

This release will also feature a new customized UI that is written in Clutter complete with nice OpenGL window effects. Their user-interface is called UX and it has support for integration with cloud services, third party apps, and even an apps store. They also use the Moblin-ized version web browser, media player, and other applications.

Look for an official announcement regarding the Moblin-ized Linpus Linux Lite to come on the 2nd of June. We are very fond of Moblin V2 at Phoronix with its very impressive user-interface and incredibly fast boot times. Novell and other distribution vendors are also working on their own Moblin-integrated distributions to target Intel Atom devices like the Dell Mini 9 and Samsung NC10.
