Intel switches from Ubuntu to Fedora for Mobile Linux



Hi

http://www.heise-online.co.uk/open/Intel-switches-from-Ubuntu-to-Fedora-for-Mobile-Linux--/news/111166

"Chip manufacturer Intel wants to use parts of the Fedora Project Linux distribution instead of Ubuntu as the basis for the second version of Moblin (Mobile & Internet Linux Project)"

"Intel is keen on using a Linux distribution that uses RPM packages and package management software. Hohndel pointed out that RPM packages include licence information; the DEB package management as used by Ubuntu and Debian doesn't have this information in the package files. By having licence information available, developers can create software collections by licence type or exclude software with certain types of licences"
