ASUS Eee PC with Moblin

ASUS will release an Eee PC netbook later this year with Intel's Moblin Linux operating system, according to a Friday report from German website NetbookNews. The news is not official, but the site says it has a reliable source for the netbook, which is expected to come out in October. Moblin will not be preloaded on a new Eee PC, but an existing one, with many expecting it to appear on the slim Seashell line of Eee PCs.

ASUS Eee PCs currently run on the Windows XP operating system, though the company has recently invested in Google's Chrome OS by working closely with the developer team, which is based in Taipei.

Moblin, or mobile Linux, was developed specifically for use in netbooks and mobile Internet devices, specifically for the Intel Atom platform. They aim to minimize boot times and power usage.
