A new Linux netbook based on the Moblin Operating System will be introduced this week, as anounced on the Intel Developer Forum in San Francisco (US).


Moblin is a Linux-based operating system designed for netbooks, mobile Internet devices & other small & midsize products.

The project was spearheaded by Intel. Acer has said it plans to roll out products using Moblin. This week's announcement may come from Dell, according to PC World.

"You're going to see this week interesting new netbooks coming out that are killer. They have the cool factor and they're priced right," according to Jim Zemlin, executive director of the Linux Foundation.

He believes that within a year, "no one will buy hardware or software." Laptops will be free with a wireless service contract. Only free software like Linux can support that model, he said. "Microsoft's economics don't fit into that at all," he said.
