MeeGo 1.0 released. The “war” has now begun.
MeeGo, the merge of Moblin and Maemo, that means Intel and Nokia, has reached a “stable” state, version 1.0, and has been released for use on netbook and mobile phones like N900 *and-all-similar-handhelds*.
It’s an interesting Linux-based OS, using kernel 2.6.33 (that’s nice), having a very fast boot time, a nice GUI set up for netbooks and the background support of two large companies.
What’s more interesting is that it seems to be the rival of ChromeOS, the (linux-based) operating system by Google, using Chrome as desktop environment.
See this video (ignore the greek commentary if you don’t like it) if you want a glimpse upon MeeGo 1.0.
