You must not confuse moblin with netbooks, nettops or with i386/32bit

Oh? That's not what I got from

Moblin is not about hardware, you can run it on a powerful 64 bit
desktop, while my netbook is perfectly able to run a normal GNOME desktop.
Moblin is about users, made for those with a small set of basic needs,
which in many cases are people using netbooks or less powerful hardware,
but there are a lot of other user cases for such hardware, beyond Moblin.


As I tried to express several times before in this thread: Moblin is addressing and entirely different use-case.

Whether this use-case of interest in individual situations is a different question - To some it might be interesting, to me, it is not.
