What does MeeGo mean for Mobile Linux?
There have been multiple efforts from multiple vendor groups over the last 5 years to develop a successful mobile Linux operating system.
Now we've got another one with MeeGo that my colleague Andy Patrizio reported on yesterday.
The pairing of Nokia's Maemo with Intel's Moblin was a bit surprising to me initially, but in many ways it does make sense. To be blunt, Nokia's Maemo Linux platform was going nowhere fast.
I see only one reason why Moblin will benefit from Nokia's participation and that's Qt. Nokia own Qt Software (formerly known as Trolltech) and it provides what some developers view as a superior open source toolkit for user interface development.
