Unfortunately it doesn't support wireless OOTB, one needs to install it manually (I followed the Dell mini 9 guide which is for the Beta but still works on with Final). It is also missing some multimedia codecs which prevent mp3 and some video formats from playing, and the newly released Moblin Application Garage doesn't have many applications avaliable just yet.

Moblin 2.0 trial - 09-26-2009, 07:35 PM
Tonight I tried the 2.0 "final" release. There is a lot more than the previous, but it is still to buggy. The live version is also sluggish.
The WiFi does not work out-of-the-box. Many times appeared the error box ("dismiss"?). I tried to access the data on my SSD memory and I was asked for a password: I had an intuition to discover it is "moblin". The presentation of the folders seems very messy (may be a different concept with respect to traditional OS). The success of any operation appears to be randomly determined.
I think it will never be an OS for my taste.
