The first release of MeeGo
, the operating system that's a joint effort by Intel and Nokia to marry the Linux-based Moblin and Maemo platforms
, is now available. MeeGo is still far from being a readied product, but this first release is the bridging of the Moblin and Maemo repositories and spinning the first bootable ISO from that code-base, which will work with Intel Atom and Nokia N900 hardware.
The first official release of MeeGo is expected in May, but for now the test images are available along with the RPM package repository and the source code is available via Git.
This first step forward was announced on the MeeGo blog
. The three images of the current MeeGo snapshot for the ARM-based N900, Intel Atom netbooks, and Intel Atom handsets are available from the MeeGo downloads area
. Tests of MeeGo will be published on Phoronix next week once I return from Chernobyl
