MeeGo Linux coming to netbooks, smartbooks soon

,----[ Quote ]
| The folks behind the MeeGo Linux project 
| launched the first public beta version of 
| the operating system recently. But thatâs 
| just the first step. MeeGo is backed by 
| Intel and Nokia, and they have big plans 
| to get the paltform on all sorts of 
| devices including netbooks and smartphones 
| soon.
| The netbook version of MeeGo doesnât look 
| like anything all that new if youâve been 
| following Moblin Linux for a while. MeeGo 
| was born out of the merger of the Moblin 
| and Maemo projects. And it looks like the 
| UI is mostly Moblin-based, with a heavy 
| dose of home screen widgets for checking 
| your email, seeing status updates from 
| your contacts, and launching apps. There 
| are tabs along the top of the user 
| interface for launching different zones, 
| including a people zone (for your 
| contacts) or a media zone for playing 
| music and movies.


MeeGo partners reveal strong China focus

,----[ Quote ]
| The Linux Foundation (LF) announced 27 
| partners in the MeeGo mobile Linux 
| project, which is principally backed by 
| Intel and Nokia. Companies that have 
| pledged support for the MeeGo merger of 
| the Linux-based Moblin and Maemo 
| distributions include device vendors Acer 
| and Asus, set-top maker Amino, automotive 
| firm BMW Group, and a number of software 
| firms based in China.


MeeGo Developer Community Grows as Software Ecosystem Support Broadens



MeeGo project garners new industry participants

,----[ Quote ]
| MeeGo, the unification of Intelâs Moblin
| and Nokiaâs Maemo, and shepherded by the
| Linux Foundation, is getting a lot of
| support from a variety of companies. From
| hardware developers to software houses,
| from games to automotive to embedded
| solutions providers, the recent
| announcement indicates an influx of
| potentially millions of developer-hours.
| Some of the new participants are no-
| brainers, while some are a bit surprising.
| Whether itâs an effort to hedge bets for or
| against Android, or just widening the
| market potential for their products, the
| end result is hopefully a better MeeGo,
| which is better for you and me.


Chromium ported to N900

,----[ Quote ]
| As reported over on Engadget, the move is
| an unofficial port of the Chromium
| sourcecode to run on the Maemo Linux
| platform that forms the core of Nokia's
| top-end N900 smartphone.


Nokia Launch: Symbian ^3, Or Just Maps?

,----[ Quote ]
| Nokiaâs recent N900 Linux device is
| currently generating more excitement than
| its Symbian smartphones.


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.
