MeeGo Linux an Introduction

The world’s largest chip manufacturer, Intel, and the world’s largest mobile handset manufacturer, Nokia, announced joining their existing open source projects (Moblin and Maemo respectively) to form a new project called MeeGo, hosted at the Linux Foundation. This article provides an introduction to the MeeGo project, a brief overview of the MeeGo architecture, the benefits the MeeGo platform offers to the various players in the ecosystem, and discusses the role of the Linux Foundation as a host of the project.

Introduction to MeeGo Linux

MeeGo is a Linux-based platform that is capable of running on multiple computing devices, including
handsets, netbooks, tablets, connected TVs and in-vehicle infotainment systems.

The primary goal of the merger of the Maemo and Moblin projects was to unify the efforts of the Moblin
and Maemo communities and to enable a next generation open source Linux-platform suited for a
variety of client devices. Most importantly, MeeGo will be doing so while:
1. Maintaining freedom for innovation
2. Continuing the tradition of community involvement (inherited from Maemo and Moblin)
3. Accelerating time-to-market for a new set of applications, services and user experiences
With the merger, the MeeGo project has now the opportunity to significantly expand the market
opportunities on a wide range of devices and support multiple chip architectures (ARM and x86) from
the get go.

MeeGo includes:
* Performance optimizations and features which enable rich computational and graphically oriented applications and connected services development
* No-compromise internet standards support delivering the best web experiences
* Easy to use, flexible and powerful UI/app development environment based on Qt
* Open source project organization managed by the Linux Foundation
* State of the Art Linux stack optimized for the size and capabilities of small footprint platforms and mobile devices, but delivering broad linux software application compatibility

MeeGo also provide a rich cross-platform development environment so applications can span multiple platforms and will unify developers providing a wealth of applications and services. Such opportunities for instances were out of reach for Maemo and Moblin individually. Furthermore, MeeGo is committed to work in the upstream projects so that everyone using those upstream projects can benefit from MeeGo’s contributions to it.
