Intel and Novell on Thursday announced a deal to push Moblin, the open source Linux platform designed to work with the chip giant's Atom chip. Intel cooked up Moblin and then handed it off to the open source community.

Among the details of the plan:

  • Novell will create a Moblin-based product for netbooks;
  • Novell will establish an open lab in Taiwan to push Moblin adoption;
  • Intel and the Taiwan Moblin Enabling Center will validate designs for Moblin compliance.
