Topic: Moblin v2.1 on N10Jc
I have recently tried installing moblin on the Asus N10Jc netbook. The installation went fine, given had to manually make partition in windows first. The installation for Moblin is pretty fast.
The boot time is real good. It is as good as the ExpressGate boot time. The interface of Moblin is also very nice. However, the WiFi connection dropped when i tried to install any app using its App manager. After doing a update, I don't face the problem anymore. Though it may still randomly disconnect the wifi. But thats rare. The battery consumption i guess is less then the XP.
One thing important, Moblin won't work if graphics card is switched on. It doesn't even boot in my case. It needs intel on board graphics, to work. The Fn shortcut keys all work. You may not get the OSD notification, but it will still work, except the LifeFrame key, and the Splendid Video key.
On top of that, you need to know linux well to make XViD and mp3 files, plus ntfs support to work.
Moblin is basically a heavily modified Fedora 10. But still, its snappier boot times, and its UI are something you will like. I only use it when i simply need to surf or chat on yahoo.
Am going to try JoliCloud and Ubuntu 9.10 NBR next. Btw, Ubuntu 9.10 NBR is the best performer in benchmarks for netbooks, in terms of Battery Usage, Memory Usage, processing power.
Any questions are welcome.
