That isn't entirely accurate. It seems like every day Intel is hiring a new Linux or Cairo or Gnome dev. They have more than enough developers to have their own distro, and basing it off a distro with different goals (mainly to become an enterprise linux) would only slow them down due to patch management etc.

Where do you think most of the packages from Moblin came from? What do you
believe is the percentage of packages maintained by volunteers in Fedora?

I'm not saying that Fedora was not used to seed Moblin, but Moblin never committed to keep in sync with Fedora and last I've seen the changes that occurred Fedora-side after this seeding were never pulled Moblin-side.

(more the pity since Moblin forked Fedora early in a cycle when stuff was far from stabilized)
