Mobilinux is a discontinued Linux distribution by MontaVista. It was announced on April 25, 2005.
In 2005, PalmSource joined MontaVista to collaborate on Mobilinux.
In April 2005, version 4.0 was released. In 2007, version 5.0 was released.
Around 35 million devices have run on Mobilinux, mainly in Asian markets. LWN.net argued that because it was controlled by a single company and targeted mobile operators, it did not generated a large developer community. It has been used on smartphones and NAS devices. The Motorola ROKR ran Mobilinux.
It had support for the Freescale's i.MX31 chipset.
