Ubuntu Moblin Remix Project

Ubuntu Moblin Remix is based on Ubuntu 9.10 and is a version of Ubuntu specially designed to run on netbooks. Based on the Moblin v2 for Intel Atom™ processor platform, Ubuntu Moblin Remix is optimised for a retail environment. With its new consumer-friendly interface to bring together online and offline worlds, users can view and post updates to social networks, listen to music and watch videos and manage their daily calendar.

Moblin is a completely new user experience, and Canonical has integrated Moblin into Ubuntu. Moblin’s integrated web browser and media player makes it easier to work and play, providing quick and easy access to favourite applications, tasks, appointments, recently used content and the latest updates from friends.
