At the end of September the Intel Developer Forum 2009 took place in San Francisco, an event where Intel introduces new hardware and software technolgies and gives tech savvy people the opportunity to get in touch with Intel's top engineers.
At the recent event new versions of Moblin based operating systems, inlcuding Ubuntu Moblin Remix, Linpus Light Moblin V2 enhanced, and Moblin for MIDs were demonstrated to the audience, including the Netbook News team, that recorded these videos with lots of interesting insights about Moblin and Moblin based devices.
In the 1st video Sascha talks to Jerone Young of Canonical who, after taking a brief look at Ubuntu Netbook Remix's revamped user interface of the upcoming Karmic Koala release, walks through Ubuntu Moblin Remix. Jerone explains the zones based interface for arranging and navigating applications, that replaces the traditional taskbar in the OS that is shipped with Dell's Inspiron Mini 10v netbook.
In the 2nd video Sascha is at the Linpus booth together with Warren Coles, who introduces 3 of Linpus's Moblin based products: Linpus Light Desktop, Linpus Light Moblin V2 enhanced, and Linpus QuickOS. Some of the features Linpus added to Moblin is a Webmail module and a function for live system updates that identifies the device Moblin is running on to send the right patches.
In the 3rd video Pankaj Kedia, whose longish job title is Director, Global Ecosystem Programs, Mobile Internet Devices at Intel Corporation, sits with a group of bloggers and answers their questions about Moblin for Mobile Internet Devices (MIDs) and the new smaller and less power consuming Moorsetown processor, which is set to replace the Menlow chips.
