Back in January Intel had pushed out its first alpha release
for Moblin V2. This Intel-optimized Linux distribution targeting systems
with Intel Atom hardware was quite unique and offered a number of
advantages for being a netbook-oriented operating system. Particularly
special about Intel Moblin V2 was its boot-time, which was extremely
fast when using a Solid-State Drive. Intel has now put out a second
alpha release for Moblin V2, which we are briefly exploring today.
