Default HP mini 1000 using Ubuntu-based Linux MIE

In the past few days we have learned about HP's new Mini 1000 flavor using a brand new Ubuntu-based Linux MIE.
I am curious if this is a standard desktop variation or it is based on the Mobile project. If not do you intend working with HP and offering them the mobile edition as the base for their alteration?

I must reveal that I am currently working for HP, but I have no connection whatsoever to that department so I know nothing about it nor know any person making decisions for the hardware/OS products. I just thought as an Ubuntu fan that this might be the best chance to leverage this OS mobile flavor ...


Best,
Tal

Are you sure it's running Ubuntu? I thought the HP netbooks were all
running Suse? It was one of the reasons I didn't buy an HP.

"Although the Linux version of the Mini-Note runs SUSE Linux, the MIE
distro is touted as being "HP developed." Based on Ubuntu, according to
third-party reports, it has been gussied up with an "HP MediaStyle" GUI
interface"
