Regardless of your take on that, it is now a very very popular segment

side line them.

The netbook problem can be addressed by a "download netbook edition" link
which can then be not only 32-bit, but also using a desktop optimized for
netbook display and RAM sizes rather than the default GNOME.

Someone will have to volunteer to do that and IMO, the default ISO image
should just work for netbooks anyway.


See the Moblin respin.  Too late to be a spin for F12, could be one of
the official spins for F13.
You must not confuse moblin with netbooks, nettops or with i386/32bit machines in general. The moblin desktop is addressing a completely different audience.
