Ubuntu Moblin Remix Developer Edition for the Inspiron Mini 10v is here. As we shared at the Intel Developer Forum today, Dell and Canonical have worked closely to ensure good hardware/software compatibility, and seamless integration between Ubuntu and Moblin. For those not familiar, Moblin is an open source project, created by Intel and hosted by the Linux Foundation, focused on building a Linux-based platform optimized for mobile devices. It has a unique user interface focused on using the Internet, social networking activity, and media consumption, and is optimized for small screens. The Moblin project recently released version 2.0, which includes many new features such as the myzone home screen panel, aggregation of social networking content (such as Twitter, last.fm, and instant messaging), a web browser optimized for the user interface, a "zoomable" media player, and an updated connection manager with a new user interface.

This is too cool. Rock on Dell!
Oh, it's too great, but for Spain we can't get a Dell Mini with ubuntu installed, we have to pay Windows XP license. Only the one with 8Gb SSD hard disk is available with ubuntu 8.04. But, if you live in the united states, you are lucky, you can buy a Dell mini with ubuntu. So well, maybe I get an Acer Aspire One that comes with linux in Spain.
