Moblin is dead. MeeGo is somewhere between both arguments and there's
network-manager-netbook replacement for connman, and the trademark
issues are well and being dealt with and should be a non issue in time
for F-15. Its also based on mutter, so its not that different from
gnome-shell (hopefully even the fork might soon be resolved).
