Back in February, the Moblin and Maemo projects from Intel and Nokia, respectively, made love and out came MeeGo. The two industry players had joined forces to come up with what they feel is the best Linux platform for mobile devices ranging from netbooks to in-vehicle information systems. Version 1.0 of the MeeGo Core Software Platform has been released today.

There will be a few different user experience layers of MeeGo depending upon what it's running on, but the core of this Moblin-Maemo stack has now reached version 1.0. Offered up by the MeeGo project is an Intel Atom netbook spin and also an image for use on the Nokia N900 device.

MeeGo inherits the nice user-interface derived from Moblin along with its quick boot speeds while offering up more improvements too. MeeGo is running atop the Linux 2.6.33 kernel, is using the Btrfs file-system by default, runs with an updated Linux graphics stack, is powered by Qt 4.6, and supports various media frameworks.

MeeGo 1.0 is looking good and you can bet we are in the process of dissecting this mobile Linux operating system and benchmarking on it across different netbooks. Plans for MeeGo 1.1 have already been laid and it's expected to come in six-months -- October of 2010. MeeGo 1.1 will offer support for touch-screen devices like handsets, tablets, and in-vehicle infotainment systems. A new MeeGo SDK is also coming out in June with support for these touch-based devices.
