ZDNet Asia presents
with Intel's director of Intel's Open Source Technology Center, Imad Sousou.
"You're about to release Moblin v2.0. Can you tell us more about that?
[As a] release from an open source perspective, it's a milestone more than it is a product release--product releases come from OS vendors and OEMs [manufacturers]. Soon you will start to see OEMs shipping netbooks with Moblin. You will see an announcement over [time].
It's still in beta--right now we're in the very final phase. Very minor but critical bug fixes are being done based on input from OEMs and OS vendors. We don't want to call it a release until someone actually ships a product with it.
The final version will be available for download over the next couple of weeks. Once that happens, we will go on a regular cadence of a release every six months
to make it easy for people to be able to have predictability in terms of time schedules.
