Wasn't there a Dell netbook with Ubuntu's version of Moblin?

Ubuntu Netbook Remix is not Moblin, afaik.

It is indeed Moblin-based. Your editor reviewed it back in November.

Thanks for clarifying, my editor.

Ubuntu Netbook Edition (formerly Remix) is not based on Moblin. It uses a bunch of tech developed in house at Canonical, including a launcher, some panel applets and a way of keeping windows maximized.

There is a moblin variant that was created for 9.10, but there has been no work in this cycle, that I can find. I believe that is the same work that LWN reviewed on a Dell, although not having played with it, I cannot say for certain.
