MeeGo 1.0


Nokia's 16 model house reveals a smokin' S series, N9 MeeGo?

,----[ Quote ]
| Lovely home except for those pesky leaks. This 
| Nokia house built (circa 2010) upon on a 
| foundation of Symbian with a MeeGo roof is 
| also sporting an interesting looking S-series 
| smokestack. Most of the building blocks we've 
| already seen including the flagship N8. The N9 
| is almost certainly Nokia's followup to the 
| N900 and Espoo's first handset to feature its 
| new MeeGo OS.


Netbook MeeGo a NoGo - Review

,----[ Quote ]
| Now I am all for trying new distros and 
| netbooks are a place where I feel Linux truly 
| outshines all other operating systems, so when 
| a new netbook focused distro comes to maturity 
| I always like to take it for a test drive. 
| MeeGo, the joint operating system between 
| Nokia's Maemo and Intel's Moblin, has been 
| getting alot of hype recently in the Linux 
| community and the world at large. I can 
| understand why, personally I was very excited 
| when MeeGo was first announced. Nokia and 
| Intel are both very large names that bring 
| substantial financial backing to the table, 
| beyond this they are also allowing the Linux 
| Foundation to manage the MeeGo project.


Nokia clarifies Qt release roadmap, launches Qt SDK 1.0RC

,----[ Quote ]
| Nokia has issued a release candidate for 
| version 1.0 of the Qt SDK and has published 
| some details about the release roadmap. The 
| SDK will be released with Qt Creator 2.0 and 
| Qt 4.6.3.
| Qt is an open source development toolkit that 
| simplifies cross-platform application 
| development. After obtaining Qt in a 2008 
| acquisition of Trolltech, Nokia relicensed the 
| toolkit under the LPGL so that it could be 
| used to develop proprietary applications at no 
| cost. Nokia has largely focused on improving 
| the toolkit's suitability for rapid mobile 
| development. It can be used to build 
| applications that will run across all three 
| major desktop operating systems and several 
| mobile platforms, including Symbian and MeeGo.



MeeGo Gains Industry Momentum

,----[ Quote ]
| Intel and Nokia have released version 1.0
| of the MeeGo Core Software Platform and the
| MeeGo Netbook User Experience. This release
| provides developers with a stable core
| foundation for application development and
| a rich user experience for Netbooks.


MeeGo is coming


MeeGo has a coming out party on the Quanta Redvale, Winstron W1 and CZC P10T tablets

,----[ Quote ]
| For those not familiar with MeeGo you better
| study up on it because it has officially
| arrived. MeeGo is the joining of two open
| source Linux operating systems â Intelâs Moblin
| and Nokiaâs Maemo â which was announced at
| Mobile World Congress earlier this year. It
| offers online and computing capability focused
| around multitasking, multimedia playback and
| strong graphics processing for a range of
| devices â not just netbooks or mobile phones.
| Up until now we havenât heard that much MeeGo
| talk, mostly just rumored rumblings, but my
| have the MeeGo gates opened.


Intel Press Release Reveals Future Plans for MeeGo

,----[ Quote ]
| MeeGo support included in "Oak Trail"
| platform, Acer committed to MeeGo on upcoming
| netbooks.


Intel seeks consumers for MeeGo

,----[ Quote ]
| Intel has released more details and the
| deployment roadmap for the company's MeeGo
| operating system (OS), highlighting its
| desire for consumers to start utilizing the
| open source platform.
| During his keynote here Wednesday at Computex
| 2010, Peter Biddle, director of Intel's AppUp
| products and services, noted that while he is
| "no longer worried" about attracting
| developers to create content for the MeeGo
| platform, it is consumer adoption that now
| preoccupies his thoughts. "We need more
| consumers!" he declared.


MeeGo user interface coming to Acer, Asus, other Linux devices

,----[ Quote ]
| Just a few months after the MeeGo Linux
| project was formed by the merger of the Maemo
| and Moblin projects, it looks like MeeGo is
| making some pretty serious progress in the
| marketplace.
| The other day we reported that it looked like
| Asus was going to launch devices running
| MeeGo in 2011, and a press release issued
| today pretty much confirms it. Acer officials
| say the company palns to beat Asus to market
| with a MeeGo-based netbook before the end of
| this year.


Is it time to MeeGo?

,----[ Quote ]
| What is MeeGo in the first place? As defined
| on its website, âMeeGo is an open source,
| Linux project which brings together the
| Moblin project, headed by Intel, and Maemo,
| by Nokia, into a single open source
| activity.â The aim is to provide a Linux-
| based OS for netbooks, handheld devices,
| televisions and set-top boxes, as well as in-
| vehicle computers.
| I downloaded the OS image from the site and
| immediately ran it on VMWare Fusion 3.1 on my
| Macbook Pro. Giving it 1GB of RAM and a
| single core to work with, the image booted up
| but that was it -- did not display anything
| on the screen. I tried this three times with
| different configurations and nothing.


MeeGo Brings The Magic

,----[ Quote ]
| I did install it without any problems on an
| Asus EeePC 1000HE, however there are a great
| number of existing netbooks out there and it
| might not work as seamlessly on other makes
| and models.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.10 (GNU/Linux)
