MeeGo Repositories: Code Available for Moblin-Maemo Merger
Imad Sousou, director of Intel's Open Source Technology Center, has released the first parts for developers of the Linux-based MeeGo platform for mobile devices.
The upcoming days should provide further distributions of the MeeGo platform code. The first complete release that includes the operating system and telephony services, Internet and file management, should be available in May 2010. The new images are downloadable and, according to Sousou, can be flashed directly from PCs or booted from a USB stick. Images are currently for Intel Atom-based netbooks and Moorestown mobile devices, and ARM-based Nokia N900s.
Sousou notes, however, that because some components "are not yet included in today's MeeGo core, these images will boot into terminal." Sousou's blog includes the download links and dependencies. Developer feedback is requested via the MeeGo wiki and mailing lists.
