Hi All,

I noticed Intel has announced [1] the first alpha of Moblin 2 which
from memory and by the look of it is based on Fedora [2].

Various parts from Moblin 2 come from Fedora. Other parts come from
OpenSUSE, and about half is packaged newly based on upstream releases.
(although some descriptions are borrowed from various sources)

Yes but Intel doesn't seem interested in pushing any changes back
to Fedora.

If there was a "based on" relationship we would. But it's not nearly so

For anyone interested in the gritty details, there is an article that explains the specifics of achieving the fast boot time.  I presume the demo in question to be exactly whats discussed in the article.
