Moblin (mobile Linux) – an open source operating system and application stack for Mobile Internet Devices (MIDs), netbooks, nettops and embedded devices built on the top of Linux kernel.
The central piece of the architecture is the common layer we call “Moblin Core”, a hardware and usage model independent layer that provides one uniform way to develop such devices. Moblin Core is built on the GNOME Mobile platform, extending and enriching it with Intel open source technologies like Clutter, GUPnP, and Atom specific technologies, such as graphics, fast boot, and power saving.
Moblin 2 Core distribution is based on recent builds of Fedora and uses RPM package manager. The system uses a custom-built GNOME Mobile UI (instead of Xfce) based on OpenedHand’s Clutter, a key piece of the Maemo graphical environment, built around the X Window System.
Moblin was under development between 2007 and 2009. In 2009 Moblin was merged with Maemo, becoming MeeGo, which was hosted by the Linux Foundation, until 2011.
