Dell and Canonical have been collaborating on Ubuntu Moblin Remix, which is a mix of Ubuntu, Ubuntu Netbook Remix, and Intel's Moblin 2.0 platform. Moblin 2.0 offers a very impressive user-interface
and great boot times
for use on Intel Atom-powered netbooks. Announced today at the Intel Developer Forum is that Dell will begin offering Ubuntu Moblin Remix on their Dell Mini 10v netbook.
For now their Ubuntu Moblin Remix build is based against Ubuntu 9.04 and is being tagged as a "Developer Edition" of this operating system, but with time we would suspect further integration within the Dellbuntu family. For those that already purchased a Mini 10v from Dell, following their Moblin Wiki page
you can upgrade to the Ubuntu Moblin Remix Developer Edition. Details surrounding today's announcement can be found on the Dell Community blog
