Creator of Linpus Lite Joins Linux Foundation

,----[ Quote ]
| The Linux Foundation, the nonprofit 
| organization dedicated to accelerating the 
| growth of Linux, today announced that 
| Linpus Technologies is its newest member.
| Linpus is a popular Linux distribution for 
| the consumer PC market with a long history 
| of shipping on notebooks and netbooks for 
| many of the world's largest OEMs. It is 
| becoming a member of The Linux Foundation 
| to play an ongoing role in the MeeGo 
| project and other community initiatives 
| that advance Linux's competitive position 
| for a new generation of computing devices. 


The first MeeGo release

,----[ Quote ]
| Today is the culmination of a huge effort 
| by the worldwide Nokia and Intel teams to 
| share the MeeGo operating system code with 
| the open source community. This is the 
| latest step in the full merger of Maemo and 
| Moblin, and we are happy to open the 
| repositories and move the ongoing 
| development work into the open - as we set 
| out to do from the beginning.


MeeGo code released for netbooks, the N900, and Aava phone

,----[ Quote ]
| The MeeGo community has "opened the 
| repositories" on early code for the open 
| source mobile Linux operating system, which 
| combines the Intel-backed Moblin and 
| Nokia's Maemo platforms. Images are now 
| publicly available for the MeeGo 
| distribution infrastructure and OS base 
| "from the Linux kernel to the OS 
| infrastructure up to the middleware layer," 
| says the community.


MeeGo gets going: source code and developer builds available

,----[ Quote ]
| In a statement today at the official MeeGo 
| community Web site, Intel Open Source 
| Technology Center director Imad Sousou 
| announced that the MeeGo source code and 
| first installable images are available for 
| download. The platform itself is still 
| incomplete and under heavy active 
| development. The purpose of this release is 
| to make it possible for third-party 
| developers to begin participating in the 
| project.



MeeGo steering group easing platform concerns?

,----[ Quote ]
| Valtteri Halla, the Nokia member of the MeeGo
| Technical Steering Group recently attempted
| to allay the concerns of the open source
| community by underscoring the importance of
| openness in the development of the MeeGo
| operating system.


Linux summit dissects MeeGo

,----[ Quote ]
| The Linux Foundation has announced sessions
| for its Collaboration Summit, scheduled for
| Apr. 14-16 at the Hotel Kabuki in San
| Francisco. This year's event features a
| full-day workgroup on MeeGo, as well as
| discussions of Linux topics including
| toolchain, cloud computing, printing,
| filesystems, ISV porting, and open source
| compliance.
