  1. We already knew Asus has been mulling the launch of an Android-based netbook before the end of October, but apparently the open source future of its Eee PC line doesn’t end there. According to a story at NetbookNews.de citing an unnamed “safe source,” the company will also launch a Moblin netbook in that timeframe.

  2. Asus, you global open source hero --> http://itsbetterwithwindows.com/
  3. Even Linux fans haven't been to kind to Moblin, why would anyone want this as opposed to Ubuntu is beyond me. Personally I like Linux but not for serious computing. I guess its adequate on a netbook but never on my main desktop. It doesn't game, its video and photo editing apps are atrocious and I hate Open Office.
