Dell Mini 10v gets Intel's Linux OS

Dell at IDF revealed that it's about to ship a version of the Inspiron Mini 10v with Moblin Linux. The system is initially aimed at developers but will give everyone a simpler-to-use alternative to Ubuntu for web browsing and media playback. It specifically uses Canonical's Moblin Netbook Remix, a variant tailored for the screens and interfaces common to the mini notebooks.

The Mini 10v's hardware isn't expected to change with the Moblin version, which should cost the same $299 as the Windows XP model. Dell starts sales on Thursday the 24th and won't require developer credentials.
