Another day, another SUSE/Moblin Linux netbook


Shame on me, I missed that during last week’s CES (Consumer Electronics Show), MSI wasn’t the only company to announce the release of a SUSE/Moblin Linux-powered netbook. Samsung also announced that they’ll be releasing this Linux mix on its N127 netbook.

This release, however, is still just getting out of the starting blocks. As several people at the show reported, the one sample netbook that Samsung was showing still had a Windows key emblazoned on its keyboard. Whoops!

The system also won’t be available in the States anytime soon. It’s being introduced first in India and Russia. Then, if all goes well, you can expect to see it in North America and Europe.
