The openSUSE Goblin Team, which was originally formed to bring the latest Moblin innovations into the openSUSE world and now are focusing upon pulling in MeeGo innovations after Moblin and Maemo merged, has a new announcement. This openSUSE team is now announcing the first public release of Smeegol, which combines MeeGo with openSUSE into one netbook-designed Linux distribution.

Making Smeegol different from upstream MeeGo or openSUSE is that this distribution is based upon openSUSE but with the MeeGo User Experience while making a few changes along the way like dropping in the Mono-based Banshee music player, NetworkManager-powered network configuration, a newer version of Evolution Express, etc. Any independent users can also build their own Smeegol-customized OS using SUSE Studio.

Details surrounding Smeegol 1.0 along with download links can be found on the openSUSE News web-site.
