The Foundations of the MeeGo Project


MeeGo is a mobile platform based on standard Linux and free desktop technologies. In this session we will discuss the strengths of the platform and its chances to succeed in the mobile industry.

MeeGo is a mobile platform founded by Intel and Nokia under the auspices of The Linux Foundation. The MeeGo project aims to become a mainstream platform deployed in handsets, netbooks, tablets, and other mobile form factors. Let's look at the seeds for MeeGo success: an open project participated in by multiple players, a standard Linux stack made of brilliant upstream projects, an architecture optimized for Intel/Atom and ARM processors, the regular free software platform development modelm and a Qt environment targeted to mobile application developers.
