MeeGo or Maemo grown up February 15, 2010Posted by Florian in kernel concepts, Linux, LinuxToGo, Maemo, MeeGo.
Wee..! Big news – Intel and Nokia joining their open source software platforms Maemo and Moblin into a single one: Meego
So what does this mean for developers and device manufacturers? One thing is for sure: The new platform will become the “grown up” version of Maemo and Moblin. Especially for the Maemo part this means that the focus will change from targeting a very few devices and a quite well-defined software stack to a more generic way to support multiple hard- and software environments. And this is good – only a portable and easy to support platform is attractive for the device makers while the availability of multiple devices is important for its attractively among software developers.
It looks like we have interesting times ahead…
