Looks like the Moblin development team is keeping busy. Version 2.0 of the Linux-based mobile operating system for netbooks arrived last month and is already refreshed. I’m downloading it now and will likely run it off a Live CD on my MSI Wind. My little laptop is already in a dual-boot mode with Windows 7 and Ubuntu 9.04. Adding another OS to the hard drive mix, a beta at that, would likely cause the device to start smoking. ;)

The latest build has been internally tested on the Acer Aspire One, Asus eeePC 9xx, Dell Mini 9, and the MSI Wind devices. Moblin says that there are fixes and some new features, but I don’t see a list of what those features are. The known issues list is available, however.

I haven’t really looked into this yet but does it support touch screens?
