The Linux-based MeeGo mobile platform made a strong showing at the Computex conference this year in Taipei. The platform is attracting some interest from hardware makers and mobile Linux software vendors.
When we reviewed the MeeGo 1.0 netbook environment last week, we noted that the official MeeGo system image does not supply a complete Linux distribution. It will be up to downstream Linux distributors and hardware vendors to handle hardware drivers, codecs, and other important bits that are needed to make the operating system practical to use on real hardware. At the time, we expressed our hope for an openSUSE-based MeeGo build from Novell so that users would have an end-to-end MeeGo platform.
