Re: Intel's Moblin dumps Ubuntu in favor of Fedora

Interesting move from Intel. Let's hope they start contributing to Fedora more.


Digg It:


"Under the changes, the existing Ubuntu-based kernel is out and Fedora is in, along with a set of Gnome-compatible mobile components that updates Moblin's previous Gnome implementation.

Dirk Hohndel, Intel's director of Linux and open-source strategy, told The Reg there was no falling out with Ubuntu, but the move to Fedora was a technical decision based on the desire to adopt RPM for package management."


Interesting read indeed... I don't mean to flame, and I don't know all the technicallities involved, but I find it rather interesting they are presenting as one of the reasons to move towards a Fedora base the package format, which is interesting as I've gottent into way too many discussions about which package format is "better" (.deb or .rpm), and since I don't know any intrinsics about both formats I cannot say as such (I use RPMs and am comfortable with them, but I've also used DEBs and dpkg directly and they don't feel too much different at the barebones level)... At any rate, just like Jeff says, hopefully this will mean greater involvement from Intel in Fedora, and lining themselves with Fedora's policies.
