MeeGo launches for developers, users given very little to get excited about

Логотип MeeGoMeeGo, the mobile Linux project that merges Nokia's Maemo with Intel's Moblin, has officially launched for developers today.

Both the MeeGo core distribution infrastructure and the operating system base are now available as downloadable images from the MeeGo project's Web site, here.

"The MeeGo common core includes the various key subsystems including the core operating system libraries, the comms and telephony services, internet and social networking services, visual services, media services, data management, device services, and personal services," Imad Sousou, Director of Intel's Open Source Technology Center and Co-chair of the MeeGo TSG said today.

The MeeGo architecture is meant to support a wide variety of devices, including netbooks, smartphones, in-vehicle systems, and connected TVs; but today's images correspond only to Atom-based netbooks, Atom-based smartphones (Moorestown), and the ARM-based Nokia N900.

It's pretty much exactly the same stuff that was offered when the two projects were separate: it's the same devices, and the new MeeGo UI is not included in the downloadable core. Instead, all of these images boot into terminal.
