Re: [vox] Moblin


I installed moblin and I am really impressed. I boosted my Mini 9 to 2
Gigs of RAM, and it flies. The whole interface is different. I installed
the Dell/Canonical custom spin. It is built for the Mini 10v, but the
from what I can see, the Mini 9 has the same specs. It's just smaller!
It must be the SSE3 instruction set that makes things work so well. Or,
maybe it is this extra Gig of RAM. I believe the intel 950 graphics uses
shared memory? Anyway, I am impressed! I guess that is contrary to what
you found?
