The 5-minute guide to the MeeGo mobile OS

,----[ Quote ]
| In the history of stupid names for Linux 
| software, MeeGo tops them all. But what is 
| it exactly?
| That's not a very nice thing to say! But 
| yes, MeeGo is an unusual name. OK, it's 
| stupid.
| It's a new project that brings together 
| Moblin, a name that you wouldn't call 
| great, but neither was it embarrassing, and 
| Maemo, a name that kept making people 
| disagree over whether it was pronounced 
| Maymo, Maimo or Meemo. Cunningly, MeeGo 
| tops them both in the silly name stakes. 


MeeGo OS â A (Faster) Alternative to Windows on Your Netbook

,----[ Quote ]
| Steve Jobs may disagree but I think 
| netbooks are fantastic. Theyâre more 
| functional than a phone and more portable 
| than a laptop, and feature a full keyboard 
| to boot.
| Netbooks are capable of running regular 
| operating systems, but Iâve recommended 
| time and time again that users find a 
| netbook-centric operating system to get the 
| most they can out of their systems.
| [...]
| Well, MeeGo 1.0 is now available for 
| download, and while the merger has slowed 
| development a little, I must say Iâm 
| impressed with this operating system 
| (although Iâm still not sure itâs ready for 
| prime time.)


MeeGo for Netbooks released -- and it's fast

,----[ Quote ]
| The Intel- and Nokia-backed MeeGo project 
| released version 1.0 of an open source 
| operating system optimized for Intel Atom-
| based netbooks. MeeGo v1.0 for Netbooks -- 
| which we found to be speedy -- comprises 
| Google's Chrome browser, Nokia's Qt 4.6, 
| plus a variety of other tools, and will be 
| followed next month by a handset version, 
| says the project.
| [...]
| Liliputing's Brad Linder also tried MeeGo 
| Netbook and found the operating system to 
| be "really, really fast." The OS will run 
| even faster when it is installed on a hard 
| drive rather than a USB stick, he added.

Intel and Nokia release MeeGo v1.0


Meego releases a netbook edition

| Meego is facing stiff competition from
| Google's Android and Chrome operating
| systems, Canonical's Ubuntu Netbook Remix
| and Microsoft's Windows 7 Starter Edition.
| Like Canonical's and Google's products,
| Meego is based on the open source Linux
| kernel.


Hands-on: MeeGo for netbooks picks up where Moblin left off

,----[ Quote ]
| Moblin 2 had its own custom Web browser
| that brought together a unique Clutter-
| based user interface and Mozilla's Gecko
| HTML rendering engine. It was a very
| compelling idea because it opened the door
| to a browsing experience with rich visual
| affects and more fluid platform
| integration. Although the concept is
| intriguing in theory, it was very difficult
| for Intel to execute on. The custom browser
| was incomplete and somewhat dysfunctional
| when we reviewed Moblin last year. Intel
| has ditched the custom browser and chose to
| adopt Google Chrome for MeeGo.


Nokia, Opera side with Adobe on Flash

| Nokia and Opera Software have taken sides
| in the Adobe-Apple battle over Flash
| multimedia support: They are in the Flash
| camp.
