MeeGo is a merger of Nokiaís Maemo OS and Intelís Moblin OS, both of which are Linux-based. Maemo OS is the platform that runs the Nokia N900, while Moblin OS runs on phones
such as the LG GW990 and netbooks from Foxconn, Acer, and others.
Google and Apple are likely the reason that Intel and Nokia felt
it was necessary to team up, although unlikely bedfellows.
MeeGo is said to be built around the Moblin core OS, but will utilize
Nokiaís Ovi Store for its apps. Showing regard to the open source movement, it will be hosted by the Linux Foundation
as an open source project that encourages community contributions in accordance with the best practices of the open source development model.
MeeGo is slated to work on netbooks, tablets, and
televisions as well.
