Distros Similar to Moblin? - 09-29-2009, 02:36 PM
Heya everyone. I tried out Moblin the other day & it seems pretty cool. My questions are:
1. Does any one know of other distros similar to Moblin?
(The only 1 I can think of is xPUD, but I have not yet tried it. xPUD - Shortest Path to the Cloud)
2. Do you think Intel Moblin has beaten Google ChromeOS to the punch? (It just sort of seems that Moblin has done what ChromeOS would have done.... What I mean is: Do you think ChromeOS will still have a place now that there's Moblin?)
Edit: I saw http://www.mydellmini.com/forum/othe...nstant-os.html I believe this is what I mean. Well, I'm off to look for info on Splashtop or gOS Cloud.... (& Presto) to see if any thing happened with them.

I don't like Moblin (especially because the WiFi does not work out-of-the-box on my Mini 9).
I will try xPUD and ChromeOS. Anyway, you can try some slim distro easily downloaded and installed by means of Unetbootin (UNetbootin - Homepage and Downloads).
