What is MeeGo?

MeeGo is an open source operating system hosted by the Linux Foundation that combines Intel's Moblin and Nokia's Maemo projects into a single platform for the next generation of tablets, pocketable computers, netbooks, automotive in-vehicle infotainment, and more.

In his introduction to the MeeGo project Jim Zemlin, Executive Director of the Linux Foundation, points out that MeeGo was built for powerful next generation devices from the ground up, it is not an OS designed for a legacy purpose that is being crammed or expanded into a new device form.

Joining forces into a single project to develop components used in many Linux based systems, including Android, Chrome OS, WebOS, and more seems to be a move in the right direction to create a competitive platform for a wide range of mobile computing devices. What do you think?

Operating Systems: MeeGo, Moblin
