Can an open source Linux platform deliver a unique experience for users in the mobile space? The community working on Moblin hopes to make this a reality.

In this brief introduction to Moblin, we'll cover what the software stack and underlying technologies look like, give a demo of the Netbook Beta release, talk about where some of the development is going, and how developers and users can get involved.

We would also like your feedback on the tools you need to develop applications for this platform.

If you would like to learn more about what Moblin is and how it fits within the mobile world, join us.
