OSCON: Why Intel cancelled Moblin dev day

Late last week in the final run up to OSCON, conference organizers sent out an email detailing the basics of OSCON and what was going on. At the end of the email there was a small note that said that the Intel Moblin (mobile Linux) developer day had been canceled. At the time there was no explanation – but now we’ve got one right from Intel itself.

Hohndel Chief Linux and Open Source Technologist at Intel took the keynote stage at OSCON this morning to talk about Moblin and Intel’s plans for mobile Linux.He also candidly addressed why the Moblin developer day was canceled.

Moblin isn’t ready. At least not Moblin 2 which is the version that Intel was hoping to talk to developers about here at OSCON. Hohndel said it will be open to the public in 3 or 4 more weeks.

“It’s a minor snag so we were a little late,” Hohndel said. “You don’t release code when the conference is you release when you’re ready.”
